The following Practice Compliance guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Compliance with bribery and corruption laws is critical to [insert organisation name][ and all its businesses].
To raise awareness, protect our reputation and avoid potential liability as a result of bribery or corruption involvement by any of our business partners we provide this briefing to all agents and intermediaries.
As a partner, agent, consultant or other third party engaged to provide services for or act on behalf of [insert organisation name], you are an ‘associated person’ under the Bribery Act 2010 (BA 2010). As such, we can be held accountable for the actions you take on our behalf. It is therefore imperative that you:
understand and follow the same laws and policies that apply to us and our staff
recognise when bribery risks arise and know how to behave appropriately and in accordance with our policies in such situations
make it clear to others that you and [insert organisation name] do not conduct business in an unethical manner, and
take steps to reduce the risk of unwittingly committing bribery
Violations of bribery laws are criminal offences and carry severe penalties for companies and individuals. They can lead to liability for us and for you and as such constitute grounds for immediate termination of our contract with you.
By following our policies you can help ensure compliance
