U.S. companies with international operations have a heightened awareness about risks associated with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in light of the intense scrutiny and hefty sanctions that have been imposed by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The anti-bribery provisions prohibit individuals and businesses from bribing foreign government officials in order to obtain or retain business and the accounting provisions impose certain record-keeping and internal control requirements. Both provisions should be a concern for both public and private companies, since involvement with corruption could result in sanctions and/or jail time as well as impact the organization’s reputation or that of their customers. The UK Bribery Act and Brazil’s Anti-Corruption Law are similar laws that have been enacted and could also impact U.S. companies doing business in those regions.
