Fraud and conflict of interest prevention

EU-OSHA is committed to improve the prevention and detection of fraud, and the conditions for investigations of fraud and achieve adequate reparation and deterrence, with proportionate and dissuasive sanctions, and respecting due process.

Fraud prevention

To this purpose, the Agency has adopted a comprehensive anti-fraud strategy that defines the responsibilities of the various stakeholders.

This is in line with the Agency’s financial regulation (Article 30 and 111) and with the requirements from the Roadmap on the follow up of the common approach on the future of EU Agencies by the Interinstitutional Working Group.

Conflict of interest prevention 

EU-OSHA is committed to ensure the integrity of the decisions and information issued by the Agency and foster accountability in relation to its work and activities. For these reasons, prevention and management of conflict of interest play an important role.

Upon appointment and every 4 years, Management Board and Executive Board members submit a declaration of absence of conflict of interests in compliance with the Agency’s policy on prevention and management of conflict of interests. Acceptances of declaration of absence of conflict of interests are available on the website. The same provisions apply to external experts.

In addition, in order to ensure transparency, the Executive Director and senior staff members’ acceptances of declaration of absence of conflict of interests are also publicly available.
