Harmonising Anti-Corruption Compliance
By Mark Pieth
New anti-corruption laws and intensified law enforcement - in particular, in Organization for Economic Co-operations and Development (OECD) Member States - are motivating companies to implement sound anti-corruption compliance programs. This will help reduce risk and may also serve as a business tool. Yet, companies are increasingly voicing the need for a harmonized approach to compliance. The OECD Guidance, enacted in 2010, may well serve as a template for such a standard, since it has been adopted by the Member States of the OECD by unanimity. This book gives an introduction to anti-corruption compliance and the OECD standards in particular. It will help managers and other corporate practitioners identify the needs for their company and know what to ask for.
