2nd Canadian Forum on Bribery & Foreign Corruption - Compliance and Enforcement

April 28-29, 2009
The Fairmont Royal York - Toronto, Canada

The enforcement of foreign corruption legislation continues to grow unabated across industries and around the globe. Transparency International reported that in 2008, 263 investigations were launched and 256 cases were brought in 19 OECD countries. US regulators are spearheading over 91 enforcement actions currently, including several high profile investigations involving prominent European companies. With the pace and reach of enforcement activity, Canadian companies must also realize their vulnerabilities.

Topics covered include:

  • Conducting effective CFPOA/FCPA due diligence in cross-border mergers and financings
  • Screening and controlling agents, consultants and joint venture partners
  • Preventing gift and hospitality pitfalls
  • Handling facilitation payments and small bribes
  • Investigating questionable payments and carrying out internal corruption risk assessments in emerging markets
  • Designing and implementing a rigorous anti-corruption program to address your company's risk areas
