Corporate Anticorruption Compliance Programs: 10 Questions Every Board Director Should Ask

Jones Day has published a white paper that addresses some of the most prominent Foreign Corrupt Practices Act-related compliance priorities requiring the attention of board members.

Those priorities include ensuring that corporate management is completely committed to compliance efforts, risk assessment, training relative to processes and policies, third-party due diligence, and similar concerns.

“The United States Department of Justice, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and non-U.S. governments and agencies have recently emphasized their continued commitments to pursuing both corporate and individual violators of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,” the firm says in an introduction to the paper. “Given this ongoing emphasis, corporate board members have particularly important roles to play in overseeing compliance and anticorruption programs in place at the companies they serve.”
