Foreign Corrupt Practices Act - Audits Role
The United Nations Convention Against Corruption was formed as a committee in 2003 to help combat what was being seen as an epidemic against free trade. Organizations working in the international arena now face greater regulatory challenges to continue practicing, to educate their employees, and to monitor for violations. The legal loophole is spreading and the FCPA has recently held financial institutions liable for not reporting clients who fail to comply with FCPA requirements.
Why should you Attend: The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is seeing increasing enforcement actions that result in significant penalties and reputational damage. Similar legislation is being enacted in multiple countries. Operating in the global arena requires knowledge of this important legislation and others like it.
Learn red flags for potential breaches of the FCPA and study recent enforcement trends. Assess whether your accounting records can form a basis for defense and identify issues. Understand how employees need to be made aware of the consequences of their actions when conducting business in the global markets.
