​​Important Guidance From the US Department of Justice and SEC About the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act​

Comments Views

​The Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission have just released A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the link is to the Department of Justice’s web site, which summarizes the guidance and has a link to download a PDF of the Resource Guide).

The Introduction states:

This resource guide, prepared by DOJ and SEC staff, aims to provide businesses and individuals with information to help them abide by the law, detect and prevent FCPA violations, and implement effective compliance programs.

I am not an attorney, so will not provide additional highlights in my normal fashion. Instead, I have included links to legal firms’ and experts' analyses.

Clearly, this should be read by internal audit leaders around the world (remember: most of the legal actions under the FCPA have been against non-U.S. corporations).

​The opinions expressed by Internal Auditor's bloggers may differ from policies and official statements of The Institute of Internal Auditors and its committees and from opinions endorsed by the bloggers' employers or the editors of Internal Auditor. The magazine is pleased to provide you an opportunity to share your thoughts about these blog posts. Some comments may be reprinted elsewhere, online or offline.
