At Universal, we are committed to conducting our business across the globe ethically and in compliance with applicable domestic and international laws and regulations. We continue to set high standards within our organization and for the industry in which we serve. By partnering with us, you can be confident we are taking the necessary steps to help you conduct your missions in a compliant manner.

Our Code

The foundation of our compliance program is set forth in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the “Code”).

Every year, our people certify that they have read and will follow the Code. We believe that our commitment to these values is critical for our business and equips us to successfully partner with our clients.

Compliance

Around the world there is a sharp increase in the number of anti-bribery enforcement cases, fines, and penalties levied against corporations and individuals. As a result, many organizations have adopted a compliance program with internal controls and demand that they only work with service providers who have similar controls in place.

As part of our Ethics and Compliance program, our people receive regular training on regulations, policies, procedures, and laws applicable to our global business. This includes anti-bribery laws such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enacted in the U.S. and the U.K. Bribery Act.

We continually monitor, report, and track the effectiveness of our internal controls and compliance initiatives.

FCPA, Sanctioned Countries, OFAC, BIS…

Our Corporate Compliance and Audit team works with your dedicated trip support team to make sure it has the latest information impacting your missions, including:

  • U.S. export and embargo laws.
  • requirements for operating to U.S. sanctioned countries.
