MONITORING & COMPLIANCE
Members of SAIF are subject to a programme that monitors their compliance with the Code of conduct. The programme includes making all employees aware of the Code, its contents, purpose, and what is required to adhere to the Code.
Management takes on the responsibility of training and implementing the programme within their organization.
Compliance with the Code must be a pre-requisite when awarding business to:
• advertising agencies
• market research companies
• media buyers and other external consultants
• event management companies
Each member will be required to sign an annual Certificate of Compliance confirming their compliance or non-compliance with the Code and the remedial action taken in the case of the latter.
A copy of the certificate will be submitted to the National Liquor Authority and SAIF for record-keeping purposes.
