AENOR awards Soltec the certificates for its Tax and Criminal Compliance Management Systems
The certificates recognise the implementation of measures that facilitate the prevention and detection of tax risks, as well as the reduction of crime risks and the promotion of an ethical business culture among all the people who make up the entity.
AENOR has delivered to Soltec certifications for their management systems for Compliance Criminal and Taxation to the UNE 19601 and UNE 19602 standards respectively. These certifications confirm the company's commitment to transparency in tax matters and the prevention of criminal offences.
The certificate of Compliance Penal, based on the UNE 19601 standard, accredits the security and trustworthiness of the organisation's management before public administrations, clients, individuals and families, among other stakeholders. It also endorses the correct implementation by Soltec of measures for the prevention and detection of crimes, the reduction of risks and the promotion of an ethical business culture among all the people who make up the company.
On the other hand, the UNE 19602 standard, created in February 2019, establishes a series of requirements for companies to voluntarily implement a tax compliance system that reinforces good tax practices. These requirements include the identification and assessment of potential tax risks and the financial controls that can reduce them, the definition of due diligence processes with the most exposed personnel in the organisation and with suppliers, and the implementation of a channel for complaints and queries.
This certification, aligned with the Spanish standard and the recommendations of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), focuses on the establishment and supervision of fiscal policies and strategies, basic guidelines for their management and decisions on matters of strategic relevance, as well as on the design of Soltec's fiscal management and control system.
"Obtaining these certificates", said Ángel Luis Sánchez Cerón, director of AENOR in the Mediterranean Region, "represents a new step by Soltec in its policy of good corporate governance and a reinforcement of its organisational culture based on transparency and cooperation with public administrations and the prevention of crime".
Silvia Díaz de Laspra, Chief Legal Counsel of Soltec, said: "We are very pleased to have obtained this certification. It is another example of the good work and effort we do at Soltec to guarantee and promote transparency and exemplary behaviour of all our professionals and collaborators. We will continue to promote measures and tools that allow us to continue to position ourselves as an example of good corporate governance".
