Fighting Corruption, Fraud, Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism

The EIB Group has a zero-tolerance policy on fraud or corruption whether occurring in connection with projects, loans or equity financed by EIB Group or perpetrated by its own staff.

The Bank’s key reference documents are the EIB’s Anti-Fraud Policy and the Procedures for the Conduct of Investigations. These documents are based on the Uniform Framework agreement reached by the IFI Anti-Corruption Task Force in September 2006, which harmonises the definitions of fraud, corruption, collusion and coercion across the IFIs.

In addition, the EIB has codes of conduct, a Guide to Procurement, internal policies and rules including conditions and clauses contained in the EIB's finance contracts and relies on European and International standards.

The Bank encourages everybody to report promptly to the Inspectorate General/Fraud Investigations Division suspicions of, or information concerning, fraud or corruption in EIB-financed operations or activities.

Please see the page How to report fraud or corruption at the EIB.

The Bank’s Whistleblowing Policy applies to all staff members and EIB contractors, allowing them to fulfill their duty to report wrongdoings.
