Global Anti-Corruption: FCPA, UK Bribery Act
As the U.S. economy becomes more globalized and business opportunities expand to all corners of the world, companies face both new opportunities and new challenges. Among the challenges is understanding and complying with the laws of foreign lands.
Some of the most important legislation involves anti-corruption and anti-bribery. Such laws include the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act, as well as the Inter-American Convention against Corruption and the OECD's Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. Together, these laws and conventions regulate the way companies all over the world transact international business.
Compliance with anti-corruption laws is mandatory. In fact, today’s international anti-corruption authorities see their role as more important than ever as they oversee a new era of prohibiting corrupt activities and ensuring enforcement. As such, employees in business development, international business, marketing, sales, operations, and finance need solid guidance to recognize and respond appropriately to corrupt activities — measures they can apply anywhere in the world.
