Om Overview of the Foreign Corrupt Practice
This extract is from chapter 2 in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance Guidebook, by Martin T. Biegelman and Daniel R. Biegelman. The focus is on an understanding of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) statute, its enforcement policies and penalties, as well as important case law and the role of government. It is not just large, multinational companies that are violating the FCPA; it is also smaller, private companies and individuals who are employing questionable practices. This chapter provides an overview of the statute and how it is applied to best ensure compliance.
