  • An Internal Reporting System Policy: establishes the guidelines to ensure integrity and transparency in our system;
  • A person in charge of the system: Cristina Elorriaga, in charge of the maximum supervision of its correct functioning;
  • An internal information channel: designed to guarantee protection against reprisals and absolute confidentiality in the communication of alleged violations;
  • A procedure for the management of information received: this establishes, in a regulated, objective and secure manner, the guidelines for the channelling, processing, investigation and resolution of information received through the channel.
