This webinar will explain the anti-bribery and accounting provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and will also discuss the UK Bribery Act. Learn the best practices for avoiding penalties for FCPA, UK Bribery Act, or local law violations.

Why Should You Attend:

In addition to the U.S. corruption law, many other countries have similar laws such as the United Kingdom, China, Columbia, India, and Canada. The FCPA has two key parts which are the Anti-Bribery provisions and the Accounting provisions.
