Bribery Act 2010 - Adequate procedures guidance published
30 March 2011
Mayer Brown Legal Update
The Bribery Act 2010 (not yet in force) is intended to modernise UK anti-corruption legislation and bring it into line with the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. It also introduces new offences aimed at making it easier for prosecutions to be brought against corporate offenders, senior management who connive in the paying of bribes by their company to win business contracts, and in situations where bribes have not been paid directly but through intermediaries.
