Global Anti-bribery and Corruption
Bribery and corruption are massive problems facing almost every industry across the globe. These unethical business practices can create unfair competition, and they are also against UK and international legislation.
There are huge consequences for those individuals who fail to implement proper policies and procedures, especially in high-risk companies and industries. In fact, simply failing to have ‘adequate procedures’ in place can put the company involved at risk of criminal prosecution.
Understanding more about local and international anti-bribery and corruption rules, laws and regulations can help ensure that your company is compliant and continues to run ethically.
