BREAKING: Consultation on Guidance for Adequate Procedures Begins

Print Friendly

The Ministry of Justice has launched the consultation process on the “guidance” to be issued by the Government under the Bribery Act about procedures which commercial organisations can put in place to prevent persons associated with them from bribing.

Importantly companies with “Adequate Procedures” will have a defence to the new Failure to Prevent Bribery offence.

For details of the consultation click here.

We shall be looking at the guidance carefully and participating in the consultation process.

We’d be delighted to hear what you think and if you’d like to join us in our submission on the draft guidance then let us know.

The closing date for submissions is 8 November 2010 and is open to anyone with an interest in the guidance to be published under section 9 of the Bribery Act.

Stay tuned.
