Read Frequently Asked Questions

As compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other anti-corruption statutes has matured into its own field, compliance professionals are faced with the proverbial one-way ratchet. U.S. enforcers’ compliance expectations continue to increase, and compliance programs now need to address multiple laws as more countries enhance and enforce their own anti-corruption regimes. This course will address the essential elements of an effective compliance program.

Why Should You Attend:

Notwithstanding the recent changes in leadership at the Department of Justice, the government’s focus on compliance with the FCPA has shown no signs of abating. Companies that are household names continue to make the news for FCPA investigations, and related shareholder litigation has continued as well. 2014 has also seen significant anti-corruption developments in countries such as Brazil, Russia, and Mexico.

After several years of rapid growth and changing expectations, compliance professionals would be well-served to reassess their compliance programs and monitor the latest developments in anti-corruption legislation and enforcement. This compliance course will help attendees identify red flags that indicate potential non-compliance and aid in achieving multiple goals with their anti-corruption compliance program.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Prohibited acts and penalties under the FCPA
  • Addressing the essential elements of an effective compliance program
  • Identifying and resolving third-party risks
  • Managing gifts, travel and entertainment expenses
  • Identifying red flags that indicate potential non-compliance
  • Monitoring, auditing and risk assessments
  • Achieving multiple goals for an anti-corruption compliance program
  • Evaluating alternative structures for an anti-corruption compliance program
  • Common pitfalls and mistakes in designing an anti-corruption compliance program
  • Recent developments in U.S. FCPA enforcement
  • Recent enforcement action in other jurisdictions
  • Recent anti-corruption legislation

Who Will Benefit:

  • Compliance officers
  • Internal auditors
  • HR managers and professionals
  • Risk managers
  • Legal department personnel

Topic Background:

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) prohibits companies and individuals from corruptly providing things of value to foreign government officials to obtain or retain a business advantage. The U.S. government has vigorously enforced the statute during the past decade, and many other countries have refocused their own anti-corruption efforts. This renewed focus on corruption and bribery has caused many companies to evaluate (or implement) their own internal anti-corruption compliance programs.
