Transparency International on Adequate Procedures

Link
7 Jul 2015

The UK Bribery Act, which was passed in 2010, introduces an offence of corporate failure to prevent bribery. The defence for a company against this liability is to prove that it had adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery. This Guidance from Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is designed to assist companies to comply with the Bribery Act by providing clear, practical advice on good practice anti-bribery systems that in TI-UK's opinion constitute 'adequate procedures' for compliance with the Bribery Act.
