The European Investment Bank is constantly monitoring progress in international standards in order to maintain its leading role amongst International Financial Institutions in the fight against tax fraud, tax evasion and harmful tax practices and to ensure that its Policy toward weakly regulated, non-transparent and uncooperative Jurisdictions keeps abreast of any material developments. Therefore, the EIB is organising a workshop to present, discuss and receive feedback on the recent updates of the Bank's NCJ policy and procedures.
The EIB is committed to maintaining a stringent policy against tax fraud, tax evasion and harmful tax practices as well as money laundering and terrorism financing. The EIB’s NCJ Policy was adopted in 2009, while a newer updated version entered into force in 2010. In 2014, an Addendum to the NCJ Policy was put in place.
In all its documents, the EIB adheres to the relevant policies of the European Union as well as to the international policies to which the EU contributes.
The workshop intends to go on from 14.00 - 16.30, starting with an introduction and presentation by the Bank’s services, followed by a questions & answers forum.
