Description: Many countries, including the United States, have specific laws on conducting business with foreign government officials that may come into play in any given export sales or other international transaction.  The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) includes comprehensive anti-bribery provisions and accounting and internal audit requirements designed to ensure that companies establish and maintain adequate compliance procedures.  In general, the FCPA prohibits US companies from making corrupt payments to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or keeping business.  The FCPA also requires public issuers of securities to meet its accounting standards. The consequences for a violation of the FCPA are extremely severe, both for the company and individuals, and may include criminal sanctions and civil liabilities. While the FCPA is an important consideration for public companies, all businesses, regardless of their size, need to have a program for dealing with the pressures for corruption that often appear when going global. 
William Hanney of Schiff Harding will join Alan Gutterman for this third program of the 2016 Going Global Series. You will receive practical advice on designing and implementing compliance programs necessary to fulfill FCPA requirements, as well as local anti-bribery laws that have been adopted by foreign countries around the world.  The program will cover the key provisions of the FCPA and the essential elements of an anti-bribery compliance program and will discuss how to audit the effectiveness of FCPA compliance programs and investigating and disclosing potential FCPA violations.  Highlights of recent enforcement actions will also be discussed.

Alan Gutterman is the author of Going Global: A Guide to Building an International Business, 2016-2017 ed.  as well as other Thomson Reuters publications and the Westlaw Business Transaction Solutions database.
