Bribery and corruption seems to be endemic in our society, and often government or SOE employees are solely condemned. However, there are always 2 parties to such transactions, and business is invariably the other party. Between the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act, other local acts and international conventions; bribery and corruption are heavily regulated areas – and likely top of mind when it comes to your compliance program.
Therefore, a lacklustre compliance program is likely to land your company in hot water because international agencies have high standards when it comes to anti-bribery, corruption and fraud practices and your organization needs to be prepared with a strong program.
