The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) was enacted in 1977 for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain individuals or companies to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. This session will address components of the law, how it is enforced,who it applies to and what can be done to protect yourself and your company.
