Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: What Every Company Doing Business Abroad Needs to Know

Two Views on Anti-Corruption

Wednesday, October 25

12:00-1:30pm Central

The US Commercial Service invites you to join Richard Bistrong of Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC and Kathryn Nickerson, Senior Counsel at the U.S. Department of Commerce for a webinar on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

The Department of Justice, SEC, FBI, and other federal agencies have devoted unprecedented resources to detecting and prosecuting Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations, which are resulting in substantial penalties and prison sentences for those involved. Companies and their employees have been held liable even when they did not know about improper conduct by their agents and channel partners. This webinar provides practical guidance on how you can avoid FCPA problems.

This presentation will address:

• FCPA Red Flags

• New incentives for whistleblowers under the Dodd-Frank law

• Detection techniques employed by government agencies

• Government focus on particular industries including medical device, pharmaceutical, military, and law enforcement products

• Particular risks for business conducted in countries with state-owned enterprises, such as China

• Compliance with new U.K. bribery law

• Standards for an effective compliance program

• Preventing individual liability for executives, compliance personnel, finance officers and salespeople

• What are the behavioral risks that front-line commercial teams face in remote regions.

• How to help employees respond to dilemmas where local culture might conflict with the rules.

• How to identify risk that a risk based compliance program might miss.

• How to prepare and engage in frontier markets where lucrative business opportunities and corruption risk are intertwined.
