The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) is the most widely enforced foreign bribery legislation and has global reach. Amendments to the law have expanded the jurisdiction of the FCPA to include most large companies doing business around the world. The legislation prohibits bribery of foreign officials, but provides a limited exception for facilitation payments.

Companies risk prosecution for failing implement adequate procedures to prevent bribery. Does your company have adequate procedures?
