The SEC and DOJ released their long-awaited resource guide to the United States’ Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”). The extensive guide provides information regarding the DOJ and SEC’s interpretation and enforcement approaches to several aspects of the FCPA. The following is a link to the voluminous resource guide: http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/fcpa/fcpa-resource-guide.pdf. Fraser Stryker’s compliance attorneys are currently in the process of working through this guide and will be providing our clients with updates on how its guidance affects our clients’ compliance efforts and approaches to the FCPA, so that we can work to ensure that our clients’ anti-bribery compliance programs include the most comprehensive and up-to-date protections against possible violations of the FCPA and other anti-bribery laws and regulations.
