About The New FCPA Resource Guide:

In November 2012, the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission combined to publish A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Guide addresses a wide variety of topics, including who and what is covered by the FCPA’s anti-bribery and accounting provisions; the hallmarks of an effective corporate compliance program; and the different types of civil and criminal resolutions available.

The 130-page guide delivers a lot of value by codifying many issues already understood by FCPA practitioners. The Guide also provides new guidance in two areas: Books & Records and M&A Due Diligence. In this webcast, experts from PwC and {others} will discuss how to ensure proper books and records (and internal controls) as part of an effective compliance program. The webcast will also focus on ensuring your due diligence program is set up to mitigate FCPA risk.
