Thomson Reuters Accelus has recently published a special report (PDF/1.43MB/28 pages) on anti-bribery and corruption and the increased burden on senior management. It is particularly pertinent in light of the Bribery Act 2010 (“Act”) coming into force tomorrow. Among other things, it contains some useful discussion on:

  • sector specific issues and guidance;
  • whether foreign issuers with a London listing escape the ambit of the Act following the recent MOJ guidance; and
  • facilitation payments and hospitality.

Definitely worth a read.
