PA Consulting Group held a roundtable briefing session on Wednesday, 18 May at its London offices, focused on the UK Bribery Act which will require significant change to the way businesses operate from a compliance perspective.
The Act, which came into force on 1 July 2011 reforms regulations regarding bribery committed both within and outside the UK, and is part of a global increase in the enforcement of anti-bribery laws. The changing compliance landscape and high cost of non-compliance, means additional pressures on companies in an operating environment recently reshaped by the cost-cutting and restructuring strategies dictated by the recession. How can organisations deliver?
Guest speaker, Vivian Robinson QC, Chief Counsel at the UK's Serious Fraud Office - which leads the UK Government's response to global corruption and bribery - summarised enforcement of the Act and its impact on companies/their compliance.
The session - by invitation only - brought together like-minded people from various industry sectors to explore changes in the UK compliance landscape, and how to protect an organisation without compromising its commercial performance.
