Prevention of criminal offences

Organic Law 1/2015, of 30 March, made an important amendment to the Criminal Code, allowing legal persons to be exempted from criminal liability if they meet the conditions set out in the second paragraph of Article 31bis of the Criminal Code.

This measure, in addition to allowing legal persons to be exonerated from liability, means that compliance with all legal requirements is reinforced.
