Over the past few years I have tried to provide the compliance practitioner with solid information that can be used to implement, review and enhance a US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) or UK Bribery Act based compliance program. I am often asked to collect my blog posting regarding what are the current best practices for an anti-corruption/anti-bribery compliance program. In other words, what are the specifics of a compliance program? This volume is an attempt to provide the compliance practitioner with information that can be used for the 'nuts and bolts' of compliance. Using a format similar to the recent US Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) guide, "A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)" [the "Guidance"], I have included some of my thoughts on what you can do to create and maintain a best practices compliance program. I have also included some of my prior articles on how to create and maintain such a compliance program using the Six Principles of Adequate Procedures compliance regime under the UK Bribery Act.

Latin America is experiencing a historic anti-corruption wave as governments in the region bolster their local anti-corruption laws, prosecutors courageously pursue high-profile cases, and corrupt political and business leaders and unscrupulous companies find themselves on the defensive. The trend is seen in Brazil's monumental "Operation Car Wash" involving the region's largest company – Petrobras, Guatemala's jailing of its former President for a customs-related bribery scheme, and the adoption of tighter anti-corruption laws in important markets like Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. An often overlooked factor in these regional developments, however, has been the role of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). For years, extraterritorial application of the FCPA by U.S. officials to companies, individuals, and schemes in Latin America has had the effect of establishing penalties in the United States for conduct largely occurring in the region. The mere threat of FCPA enforcement has prompted people working in the region to embrace anti-corruption compliance norms. FCPA cases involving companies like Embraer, Wal-Mart, and Avon operating in Latin America have exposed local corruption risks, leading U.S. businesspeople to ask more questions about best practices for managing them. THE FCPA IN LATIN AMERICA by MATTESON ELLIS, the first book to take a regional and cultural approach to FCPA compliance and enforcement matters, helps unpack the tectonic anti-corruption shifts underway in the region. It explains how U.S. companies tend to confront cultural, historical, geographical, and language barriers when implementing FCPA compliance programs with their neighbors to the South, and provides advice for navigating these challenges. It also educates Latin Americans on the FCPA, those wondering how a United States anti-corruption law could possibly apply to their own work. The book aims to guide these various audiences. To do so, it focuses on one of the most challenging and cutting-edge aspects of FCPA compliance, and an area for which little has yet been written – crossing cultural barriers to make compliance strategies effective. The book explores the nature of unique corruption risks as well as proven strategies to bridge cultural divides that often make compliance difficult to implement successfully on the ground. It does so through the eyes of Matteson Ellis, an anti-corruption attorney who speaks Spanish and Portuguese and has years of experience working on these issues in various parts of the region.

A practical guide to addressing the challenges managers face in implementing and enforcing new anti-bribery regulations The Bribery Act became the law of the land in July 2011. It abolished all existing U.K. anti-bribery laws and replaced them with a suite of new regulations decidedly different and more strenuous than what has come before. Under it companies found noncompliant will be open to billions in penalties and remediation costs, and managers will be open to prosecution if anyone associated with their company commits an offence covered by the act. As employees in nearly all departments will share responsibility for ensuring that adequate procedures are in place and enforced, there is a screaming need for practical, jargon-free guidance on the subject. This book fills that need. It arms managers and advisors with the knowledge and tools they need to implement, communicate and test controls and procedures that not only comply with but exceed the new anti-bribery requirements. It also offers priceless pointers on how to effectively react to bribery allegations if and when they occur. Packed with takeaway tips and checklists that put crucial information at readers' fingertips Written by a chartered accountant and compliance expert, the book offers practical steps managers should take to guarantee company compliance Describes best practices in anti-bribery and corruption compliance in all key business areas, including accounting, sales and marketing, management, legal, and internal auditing
