Significant Trends and Updates in Global Anti-Corruption Compliance: What You Should Know and Do
With the Trump Administration giving more emphasis on anti-corruption, enforcement actions by the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) have continuously heightened in the first quarter of 2018. New criminal charges against FCPA violators were recently released by the Department of Justice (DOJ). The anti-corruption crackdown is further intensified with the collaboration between the U.S. and foreign agencies in imposing penalties to violators.
Companies in the U.S and abroad should be abreast of the ever-evolving regulatory landscape in anti-corruption law. They should also revisit their compliance practices and integrate anti-corruption mechanisms to avoid sanctions.
