The certification was granted for two years, the maximum term provided by law, establishing Enel Chile's strong dedication to keeping a control and compliance system consistent with local regulatory requirements for crime prevention.
As a novelty, the certification included assessing all new offenses included in Law 20.393, among them corruption between private parties, unfair administration, incompatible negotiation, non-observance of isolation, or other preventive measures in case of epidemics or pandemics, among others.
"As a company, we strive to create an environment based on a culture of integrity and prevention among our teams and value chain collaborators. Enel Chile actively participates in various national and international initiatives. We promote good corporate ethics practices and contribute to creating transparent and sustainable business environments", said Eugenio Belinchón, Audit Manager of Enel Chile and subsidiaries, and Crime Prevention Officer appointed by the Board of Directors.
Enel Chile and its subsidiaries are one of the few companies in Chile with an anti-bribery management system certified by the ISO 37.001 standard, currently the most comprehensive international certification in corporate corruption prevention.
