Join Larry Whitney and Tony Migliavacca for this session on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Anti-Bribery Regulations. Do you know what constitutes bribery of a public official? When conducting international business it is important to understand world-wide anti-corruption legislation which addresses the bribery of foreign public officials. 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. This session qualifies as an "elective" under the Product Safety Aware Program.
