ARCHIVED WEBINAR :: The Bribery Act and Adequate Procedures: Threats and Opportunities
UK anti-bribery enforcement has seen a surge in cases in the past two years and the prosecutors' toolkit has expanded reach and power with the introduction of the Bribery Act. Many more businesses - especially non-UK businesses - will come under the UK criminal laws against corruption taking place anywhere in the world. Companies can now be guilty of a UK crime if bribery occurs in their business even if no-one in the company authorised or was aware of the bribe. The law does, though, present an opportunity for businesses to protect themselves by introducing a credible anti-bribery programme. Yet recent surveys suggest that a significant number of businesses have not taken steps to grasp that opportunity.
This webinar addresses the key issues arising in the anti-corruption space with particular attention to the Bribery Act
- Who is caught and so needs to act?
- How does the Act work and how will it be approached?
- What about the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act - what is different and how should FCPA-compliant businesses react?
- What are the "adequate procedures" that protect companies and how should they be implemented?
