 American Conference Institute's FCPA Boot Camp

Tuesday, January 27, 2009 - Wednesday, January 28, 2009
06:00 am London - 06:00 am London

William Pendergast will be speaking at the American Conference Institute's FCPA Boot Camp. This conference is scheduled for January 26-27, 2009 at the Four Seasons in Houston, Texas.

Overview

All companies engaged in international business, large and small, must develop and implement an FCPA compliance policy and training program to protect themselves against FCPA violations.

Having an effective and comprehensive corporate FCPA compliance policy in place will demonstrate to employees and, if necessary, law enforcement officials that your company considers anti-corruption compliance an important corporate goal. If done properly, a comprehensive compliance program can become a valuable corporate asset that enhances company operations, facilitates compliance with law and mitigates damages when and if violations occur.

This highly rated American Conference Institute FCPA Boot Camp will provide you with an excellent working knowledge of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and strategies you need to successfully implement and monitor an effective anti-corruption compliance program. Topics will include but are not limited to the following:

  • Screening freight forwarders, agents, consultants and joint venture partners

  • Developing effective anti-corruption training programs for all employees on FCPA requirements and proper ethical behavior

  • Involving senior management and the audit committee to create a corporate compliance culture and increase employee and third party adherence

  • Avoiding gifts and hospitality pitfalls

  • Conducing an internal inquiry into possible FCPA violations

  • Creating a Code of Conduct that matters

  • Harmonizing U.S. and foreign anti-corruption compliance obligations
