Legal and compliant

We will be legal and compliant, and meet the fair competition requirements of UK public funding.

We will seek at all times to be compliant with the legal and tax requirements of the countries within which we operate, especially in those countries where we generate local income.

We work in compliance with UK, European and relevant national competition law, and in accordance with our published Fair Competition Policy.  In particular, we maintain financial separation between grant-in-aid funded activity and revenue-generating activity through a robust accounting firewall, to ensure that we never cross-subsidise the latter with the former. 

We have put in place a process through which any fair competition complaints, which we have not been able to resolve informally, may be impartially investigated by an independent company. Please contact our Complaints Manager if you would like to escalate your complaint to this independent service.
