Course Description

Course Description

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 is becoming more and more important in our changing business worlds, especially as its tenets stretch beyond geographical boundaries. It is a United States law that prohibits U.S. firms and individuals from paying bribes to foreign officials to further business deals.

Corruption poses a significant legal and economic risk for corporations doing business around the world, particularly in developing and transitioning countries. The United States Department of Justice ("DOJ") and the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") are leading the international fight against corruption by increasing the number of investigations, settlements, and prosecutions for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Because of this increased enforcement activity, managers and directors who run multinational corporations are rightfully concerned about their compliance efforts.

To minimize the risks posed by foreign bribery, an organization must have a clear understanding of the practices prohibited by the FCPA and other applicable laws, such as U.S. regulations against money laundering, racketeering, and conspiracy.

Leaders and legal advisors must also remain up to date on trends in enforcement. Finally, the managers who run the organization must be able to recognize "red flags"—circumstances under which the risk of corrupt practices is high and enforcement authorities expect corporations to be particularly vigilant.

This CPE Auditing course will look at the FCPA act and discuss what does and does not constitute a violation. It will also look at the penalties for violations. Together with the importance of auditing, it will look at how time and expense may flash symptoms that should prompt organizational action. It will also briefly touch on similar legislation for other countries.
