Code of Conduct

The EDP Group’s procurement commercial transactions are based on two contractual tools: the Supplier Code of Conduct, which spells out the general and common rules, and the Contract, which explains the specific rules.

The supplier registration process in EDP implies formal acceptance of the Code of Conduct.

The supplier is asked to commit to additional provisions and to submit certifications, depending on the specificity of the Specifications and Risk Analysis.

Any exception or amendment to the referred general conditions takes the form of “Specific or Additional Conditions” and these will only be valid if made in writing, approved and signed by the legal representatives of the parties, in which case they prevail over earlier conditions.

Any conditions or specifications that the supplier may insert into documents of any nature that are contradictory to the provisions of the General, Specific or Additional Conditions will be void and have no value.
