Anti-Corruption, Bribery and Risk Management

Business and corporate strategy is now more global than it has ever been.  With the increase in international trade and associated agreements however, international scrutiny has also increased with businesses and their conduct watched evermore closely.

Just as the United States has made the enforcement of the Foreign and Corrupt Practices Act a priority, so to has the UK Serious Fraud Office sought to target allegations of corruption following the enactment of the UK Bribery Act.

It is essential therefore that businesses are alive to both their domestic and international obligations.

Dealing with multi-jurisdictional investigations at any one time is now the reality of seeking to do business in global market place.

Consequently, any business must ensure that the relevant provisions of relevant laws and regulations form an integral part of their business development and thus allow themselves to investigate and take appropriate action ‘in-house’ should there be irregularities.

Prevention is better than cure, and thus consideration must be given to the design and implementation of appropriate ‘anti-corruption’ programmes with policy enactment and employee training being given a prioritised place on any business development agenda.
