Regulations regarding gifts

It follows from Innovation Norway's ethical guidelines and anti-corruption policy that employees and others performing a service for the company in principle cannot receive gifts or other benefits in relation to their work or service. The purpose of the rules is to inter alia prevent corruption and to hinder that our impartiality can be questioned.

The prohibition against receiving gifts has certain limited exceptions, but the regulations do not allow our employees to receive gifts in relation to the holidays. Furthermore, our employees cannot participate on Christmas parties (“julebord”), Christmas lunches or other arrangements/social events which do not have a clear business purpose.
