ORGANIZATIONAL MODEL (EX LEGISLATIVE DECREE 231/2001)

The Legislative decree nr. 231 of 8th June 2001 governs, for the first time in the Italian legal system, the administrative liability of legal persons, companies and associations, including those without legal status (Agencies).

This is a new and more extensive form of liability which penalizes the agency for crimes committed, in its interest or to its advantage, by persons functionally linked to it (persons with high-ranking positions and persons subject to their management and supervision).
