TIM has adopted the "231 Organisation Model" pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001 to prevent crimes that could determine the liability of the Company, if the offences are committed in the interest or to the benefit of the organisation.
Transparency, Correctness and Fairness are the inspiring values of TIM at the basis of the adoption of the 231 Organisation Model, that ensures efficient performance of sensitive activities through prevention of the criminal offences that may give rise to the administrative liability of the company if committed in its interest or to its benefit by applying, in particular, the principles of Legislative Decree n. 231/2001.
Following the entry into force of the Decree, TIM promptly adopted 231 Organisation Model to prevent criminal and administrative offences that can potentially be committed in the course of its business activities. The 231 Organisation Model is a dynamic system, that has impact on the business operation of the company and requires continuous monitoring and updating to take into account feedbacks in its application, as well as developments in the relevant regulatory framework.
The Supervisory Board has the task to ensure that the 231 Organisation Model is updated by submitting to the Board of Directors amendments and integrations needed to adapt to changes in law and in the organization or to outcomes of the actual implementation of the 231 Organisation Model. In carrying out such activities, the Supervisory Board avails itself of the 231 Steering Committee, a collective body composed of top managers. The 231 Steering Committee is coordinated by the Compliance Department and in performing its tasks is supported by all interested departments.
The current version (v. 7.1) of the 231 Organisation Model of TIM s.p.a. has been adopted on November 10, 2020, by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company. The new version has been updated following recent reform on corporate liability that included tax crimes in the list of offences covered by Legislative Decree n. 231/2001 (implementation of o-called PIF Directive).
The 231 Organisation Model, based on best practices, is structured according to a ‘cross compliance’ approach that takes into account the specific standard of control developed by the company, specifically: the Anti-corruption Management System, Internal Control System for Financial Reporting, Tax Control Framework, Safety Management System and Environmental Management System.
