The Bribery Act and Adequate Procedures Guidance

The Bribery Act and Adequate Procedures Guidance TOPICS

OVERVIEW Bribery Act

The Bribery Act 2010 was introduced to update and enhance UK law on bribery including foreign bribery in order to address better the requirements of the 1997 OECD anti-bribery Convention. It is now among the strictest legislation internationally on bribery. Notably, it introduces a new strict liability offence for companies and partnerships of failing to prevent bribery.
