Course Overview

Discover the intricacies of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), a pivotal piece of legislation implemented by the U.S. Congress in 1977 to address the rampant corruption prevalent among U.S. businesses involved in international trade. The FCPA serves as a safeguard against unethical practices by promoting transparency and integrity. Delve into the two primary components of the act: anti-bribery measures and accounting requirements. Gain insights into the illegality of offering bribes or kickbacks to foreign government officials, irrespective of the form they take.

Explore the far-reaching implications of non-compliance, as FCPA violations can lead to severe civil and criminal penalties, fines, imprisonment, and even restrictions on future international business ventures. The course of action for businesses to ensure compliance is detailed, emphasizing the need for clear communication and monitoring of third-party agents. The facilitating payments exemption and its evolving stance are also discussed, shedding light on the changing landscape of permissible practices.

Learn about the act's global jurisdiction, encompassing U.S. companies, representatives, and even foreign entities engaging in bribery schemes within the United States. The significance of accurate record-keeping for publicly traded companies is highlighted, emphasizing the role of internationally recognized accounting procedures.

The course concludes by emphasizing the broader impact of corruption on economies and innovation, asserting that adherence to FCPA is not only a legal necessity but a moral obligation for the prosperity of both individual businesses and the global community.
