Update on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
And the UK Bribery Act

FCPA and the UK Bribery Act


U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) was enacted on 1977.  It is critical to be updated on the number of foreign bribery and corruption matters in recent years and the enhanced enforcement actions by the Regulators. 


The United Kingdom's Bribery Act of 2010 went into effect on July 1, 2011. The Act holds companies operating in any jurisdiction accountable to prevent and detect corruption and bribery actions undertaken on its behalf directed at anyone, not just foreign officials.


How are these two prominent anti-corruption laws being enforced?  What is the impact on companies operating internationally?  What opportunities do CFE practitioners have to assist in prevention and detection of corruption under thaws statutes?  Additional topics of discussion will include areas of accounting responsibilities, compliance, current enforcement and regulatory trends. Prominent FCPA practitioners, including Attorneys, Forensic Accountants and Investigators will provide more insights into effective FCPA compliance programs and investigation techniques.
