If you have been keeping up with the recent news there has been a lot about bribery, from UK politicians asking questions for cash, to allegations concerning Formula 1 in Germany, not forgetting the oil industry in Africa and pharmaceuticals in China.
All UK organisations are subject to the UK Bribery Act 2010. If one of your staff breaches the Act, however inadvertently, the organisation itself can be liable to prosecution and penalties. Organisations need urgently to understand the ramifications of the Act, how it can impact them, and what to do about it.
In the UK, if convicted under the UK Bribery Act 2010, your organisation faces the possibility of an unlimited fine and 10 years in prison for the individuals involved. In November 2011 BSI published BS 10500, the specification for an Anti-Bribery Management System – ABMS, which was published to help organisations implement an ABMS demonstrating compliance to the UK Bribery Act 2010. This is only part of the solution.
This free Anti-Bribery (ABMS) webinar
will explain how BS 10500 can help you comply with the law and how to deploy an anti-bribery management system. Hosted by IRCA registered Lead Auditor and third party assessor of ABMS to BS10500, Alan Field, this webinar will allow you to learn first-hand how developing an ABMS can do nothing but benefit your organisation, boosted by a live Q&A at the end of the session.
