Santiago, November 26, 2020.- Enel Américas obtained the certificate for its Crime Prevention Model in accordance with Law No. 20,393, which establishes the criminal responsibility of legal persons in the crimes of money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery, and corruption between private parties, among others.

The certification was granted for the maximum term established by law, that is, 2 years, which confirms the company's strong commitment to maintaining a control and compliance system consistent with local regulatory requirements and the fight against corruption.

As a novelty, the certification covered the evaluation of the new crimes included in Law 20,393 in 2018 and 2019, including corruption between private parties, unfair administration, incompatible negotiation, water pollution, among others.

Raffaele Cutrignelli, Enel Américas Audit Manager and Crime Prevention Officer appointed by the Board of Directors, is responsible for establishing and monitoring correct compliance with the Crime Prevention System.
