The recent months have seen the evolving landscape of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Along with the revisions to the Corporate Enforcement Policy in November 2017, which aimed to “increase the volume of voluntary disclosures” and “enhance the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) ability to identify and punish culpable individuals,” several FCPA-related cases have been noted. Moreover, heightened enforcement efforts are focused on the prosecution of individuals that commit corporate misconduct.
Other notable developments include the new guidance for monitors’ compliance role and tightened Yates Memo requirements.
With the increased scrutiny on FCPA violations, companies must be proactive in addressing potential risks and pitfalls. They must also keep themselves abreast of the recent trends and enforcement actions to avoid FCPA liabilities.
In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the new FCPA corporate enforcement policy. They will offer best practices in developing and implementing compliance and control procedures in light of recent trends, developments and updates, to help them avoid pitfalls. Key topics include:
• Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: An Overview
• Corporate Enforcement Policy Trends and Updates
o Extension to M&A
• Sentencing Guidelines and Monitorship
• Individual Accountability
• Yates Memo Requirements
• Risk Issues and Pitfalls
• Best Compliance Practices
• What Lies Ahead?
