The UK has, through the Bribery Act 2010, introduced some of the most far reaching regulations to combat bribery and corruption.
This places an onus on businesses to take active steps to comply with the law and to ensure they have in place adequate procedures to protect against bribery or corruption in the workplace.
For those trading internationally, there are yet further compliance obligations under the sanctions and export control regimes.
The legislation is sometimes difficult, but always necessary, to navigate. Breaches risk not only financial penalties but also the potential personal liability of an organisation’s officers and directors and untold reputational damage.
