Institutions subordinate to the Ministry of Transport strive for the highest standards of behavior

In order to achieve the highest standards of conduct and transparent operations, the Ministry of Transport, together with the companies, institutions and companies under its regulation, has prepared a set of anti-corruption documents, which includes a Code of Conduct, a Gift Policy, a Code of Conduct for Business Partners and an Anti-Corruption Policy.

These documents oblige us not to put up with unethical behavior, illegal gifts, nepotism, bribery, conflicts of interest and to strive for extremely honest, transparent, responsible and exemplary activities.

The entire set of documents is published on the Internet website of the Transport Competence Agency (TKA) – in the section “Corruption resistance documents of institutions subordinate to the Ministry of Transport”.

TKA employees apply these documents in their activities to the extent that was not foreseen in the corruption prevention legal acts issued by the institution itself.

TKA increases the transparency of its activities – the corruption prevention policy
was presented 09/11/2020

The updated corruption prevention policy was presented to the employees of the Transport Competence Agency (TKA). It provides guidelines that all TKA employees undertake to adhere to – principles that are followed in work activities, what things are not tolerated in the institution, what special attention is given, what plans are implemented, what other institutions are cooperated in the field of corruption prevention, etc.

The Transport Competence Agency (TKA) has approved internal legal acts related to received gifts – the description of the procedure for handling gifts received in accordance with international protocol or traditions and gifts intended for representation, and the description of the procedure for actions upon receipt of illegal remuneration.

They establish a zero gift policy in the institution – that is, employees can only accept those gifts that are provided in accordance with international protocol or traditions or are intended for representation – that is, decorated with the symbols of the company or the state. All gifts are evaluated by the chief advisor and a special commission and, regardless of their value, are registered.

Depending on the value of the gift, it is decided what to do with it next. If the value does not reach 150 euros, the gift can be returned to the original recipient, be exhibited at TKA or used for common needs of employees or donated to charity. If the value of the gift exceeds 150 euros, it becomes the property of the state and can be exhibited at TKA or used for common employee needs.

In the adaptation of TKA newcomers – attention to corruption prevention
