We strive to be an industry leader in safety, security and carbon efficiency, and we believe that all accidents related to people, environment and assets can be prevented.
Since our suppliers’ safety and security performance has a major impact on our own, we strongly emphasise the importance of mature safety and security cultures and organisational values during our supplier pre-qualification.
Supplier personnel who will have access to Statoil locations or systems may be screened using designated lists such as sanctions lists or security related lists to ensure compliance with national and international sanctions regulations, and anti-corruption and security requirements.
As part of international efforts to combat terrorism, human rights violations, money laundering and other criminal activity, certain national governments and international organisations identify both individuals as well as entities as so-called designated parties.
It will often be prohibited for a company such as Statoil to do business with or employ parties on a sanctions list. Moreover, such parties may in some instances also represent a security risk for Statoil.
Accordingly, ahead of allowing personnel access to its sites, office locations or systems, Statoil screens personnel through an automated name check against updated versions of relevant sanctions lists in accordance with applicable data protection regulations.
