Anti-fraud statement

Our principle: Zero tolerance to fraud!

The management structures of the Black Sea Basin Programme are committed to protect the EU funds, to maintain high legal, ethical and moral standards and to adhere to the principles of integrity, objectivity and honesty.

The management structures are dedicated to the application of the principle of zero tolerance to fraud by adopting appropriate attitude and measures. The procedures for adequate fraud risk assessment and putting in place of effective and proportionate anti-fraud measures are key components of management and control system of the Black Sea Basin Programme. The Programme procedures facilitate the prevention, detection and reporting of fraud in order for such cases to be dealt with timely and appropriately.

Fraud can manifest itself in many different ways, therefore the responsibility for an anti-fraud culture is the joint work of all those involved in the Programme implementation and in the funded projects. The Managing Authority encourages all beneficiaries, partners, contractors, employees, or the public to do their utmost to prevent fraud from happening, to put into place proportionate measures to detect it and to come forward with any suspicion of fraud in relation to Black Sea Basin Programme.
