Rajah & Tann Contributes to Lex Mundi’s Updated Global Anti-Corruption Compliance Guide
Globally, there has been a significant increase over the past decade in the implementation and enforcement of anti-corruption legislation. TheÂ Lex Mundi Global Anti-Corruption Compliance GuideÂ offers a summary of regulatory regimes in more than 70 jurisdictions across the world, assisting in-house counsel and corporate legal teams in understanding and navigating anti-corruption laws in their jurisdictions. The Guide’s interactive format allows users to search for and download an individual jurisdiction’s report or compare legislation from multiple jurisdictions in a side-by-side customisable report.
Specific questions and topics addressed in the guide include:
- What is the key anti-bribery and corruption legislation?
- Has there been a specific anti-bribery and corruption law enacted in the last ten years?
- Is requesting or accepting a bribe prohibited by the legislation?
- Is there criminal liability for corporate entities who have either paid or accepted a bribe payment?
