Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Enforcement: Recent Trends and Outlook for the Future
Overview:FCPA enforcement has been declared a top priority by the U.S. Department of Juctice and the Securities and Exchange Commision. FCPA prosecutions have generated much attention to the need for stringent compliance and due diligence procedures. In this Knowledge Group FCPA webcast, distinguished professionals will help you understand the most critical issues which will include:
- Greater cooperation among regulators and prosecutors from other countries. Several countries have brought their own corruption charges that are connected to FCPA actions brought by US authorities.
- Greater focus on pursuing individuals.
- Effective corporate compliance procedures.
- Internal investigations conducted by outside counsel and forensic auditors.
- SEC prosecutions using the FCPA’s accounting provisions (false books and records, and failing to maintain adequate systems of internal controls), without charging violations of the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA.
- The legal minefield of doing business with state-owned enterprises given US prosecutors’ claims that employees of such enterprises are “foreign officials” under the FCPA.

- Trade Counsel
- Compliance Officers
