Anti-bribery & corruption laws
It is illegal to offer, promise, give, request, agree, receive or accept bribes. You should put in place an anti bribery policy if someone within your business could be exposed to or at risk of being bribed. The policy should include the business's approach to reducing and controlling the risks of bribery, rules about accepting gifts, hospitality and donations, guidance on how to conduct business negotiations an rules on avoiding or stopping conflicts of interest. We have a great deal of experience in supporting companies write and enforce anti bribery policies and would be happy to talk you through the options.
