Anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) training and compliance resourcing: What’s expected?

Event Details

Australia | October 05, 2021

Expectations in relation to ABC compliance programs have moved on significantly in the last decade. For a number of years, enforcement agencies in the US, UK and elsewhere have engaged in a concerted effort to develop their internal compliance program expertise – the result being that companies can expect that their programs will be subject to greater scrutiny from the outset of an investigation.

Employees’ understanding of ABC issues makes or breaks a compliance programme. Authorities across the world are increasingly asking challenging questions about how:

  1. “Zero tolerance” commitments to bribery are communicated to employees by a company’s words and actions.
  2. Risk-based training is deployed to educate employees on the key risks they will face, whilst assessing their understanding and identifying emerging ABC issues.
  3. ABC compliance is resourced, and what reporting lines Compliance has to the Board.

Watch this on-demand webinar where our lawyers explored effective communications and training of ABC Compliance programmes.
