Third party intermediaries have played starring roles in some of the most highly publicized global corruption trials. By any measure, third party intermediaries routinely rank high on the list of compliance worries for brand companies.
This guide is designed to break down the complex challenge of mitigating third-party corruption risk into manageable components. Based on hundreds of member conversations and extensive research, we believe that successful companies conduct third party due diligence in five key phases.
Screening your third party vendors and business partners for risk can be a challenging process. With so many different factors to consider, where do you even begin?
We've developed our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment Checklist so you can streamline your compliance risk assessment processes and ensure each potential risk is addressed. Keep up with changing European laws and regulations with this checklist.
The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA), Sapin II and many other Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) laws and regulations around the world make it clear that bribery and corruption is prohibited, illegal and the source of fines, penalties, reputational damage, and in some cases criminal liability. This is particularly true when the bribes are offered to foreign government officials, especially by third parties.
Use this document to identify when bribery and corruption activities are most likely to be occurring within your business. Next to each bribery and corruption ‘red flag’ we have provided some suggested responses and best practices an organisation can use to address these issues and minimize the risks for your business.
What procedures should I have in place for third party engagements?
Are there particular red flags that indicate increased corruption risk?
How should I respond to high-risk third-party red flags?
Knowing which steps to take to ensure your organisation remains vigilant against bribery and corruption is an important move. When your organisation is aligned on anti-bribery and corruption policy, training and third party risk, your employees can identify, report and ultimately stamp out—bribery and corruption.
