  11. 11. ©2012 Deloitte & Touche GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Key Observations 10 • Numerous countries either in the process of tightening anti-bribery laws or debating such legislation • Potentially significant reputational risks for business Increased focus on bribery and corruption issues shaping public debate • Companies are frequently unaware of the global reach of US and UK based legislation and therefore fail to reassess their risk exposure when expanding their operations • Other legislations (e. g. PRC) may potentially have international applicability but are currently difficult to assess. Limited awareness of international regime and potential sanctions • Companies have to manage risks from both global and local / regional regimes which are still under development. • Increasing complexity means managing compliance risks is both necessary and economically challenging Growing regional business activities as a driver of GDP growth
  12. 12. ©2012 Deloitte & Touche GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Key Internationally Applied Legislation 11 US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) UK Bribery Act 2010 Applicability US nexus UK nexus Scope Limited to „public officials“ Applies to both the public and the private sector but excludes political parties and their officials. Requisite for Liability Wilful and knowing act. Also wilful blindness / disregard. Bribery of foreign officials requires the intent to influence a decision. Corporate offense of „failure to prevent bribery“. Only defense is adequate system of controls. Activity Active bribery Active and passive bribery Exceptions Yes (but of limited practical value) No
  13. 13. ©2012 Deloitte & Touche GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft International Enforcement US authorities continue to enforce the provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Enforcement action for 2013 up to this point included: • Total S.A. - SEC charged the France-based oil and gas company for paying bribes to intermediaries of an Iranian government official who then exercised his influence to help the company obtain valuable contracts to develop oil and gas fields. Total agreed to pay $398 million to settle SEC and criminal charges. (5/29/13) • Ralph Lauren Corporation - SEC announced a non-prosecution agreement (NPA) with Ralph Lauren Corporation in which the company will disgorge more than $700,000 in illicit profits and interest obtained in connection with bribes paid by a subsidiary to government officials in Argentina from 2005 to 2009. (4/22/13) • Parker Drilling Company - SEC charged the worldwide drilling services and project management firm with violating the FCPA by authorizing improper payments to a third-party intermediary in order to entertain Nigerian officials involved in resolving the company's customs disputes. Parker Drilling agreed to pay $4 million to settle the SEC's charges. (4/16/13) • Koninklijke Philips Electronics - SEC charged the Netherlands-based health care company with FCPA violations related to improper payments made by employees at its Polish subsidiary to health care officials in Poland. Philips agreed to pay more than $4.5 million to settle the charges. (4/5/13) Source: http://www.sec.gov, June 23 2014 12
  14. 14. ©2012 Deloitte & Touche GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Corporate Best Practices 13 1. Prevention • Code of Conduct • Operational Guidance / Blacklisting • Ongoing Risk Analysis • Capability Reviews 2. Detection • Proactive Identification of High-Risk Activities • Data Mining • Targeted Audits • Reporting System 3.
