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).

In this context, UniCredit Factoring  SpA has adopted an Organization and Management Model that describes the methodology used to manage the risks pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001, the composition and role of the Supervisory Board and the internal disciplinary system.

The "Code of Ethics pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 231/2001" is an integral part of the Organization and Management Model, and contains rules intended to ensure that the conduct of the Addresses are always guided by principles of fairness, collaboration, loyalty, transparency and mutual respect, as well as to avoid conducts that could constitute the offences and crimes set forth in Italian Legislative Decree 231/01.
