Bribery

Since the passing of the UK Bribery Act 2010 the UK has one of the most comprehensive anti-corruption regimes in the world, with extra territorial reach. If you have an interest in the UK, or indeed your insurers or P & I Club has an interest here, then it is more than likely that you will have to be aware of what is allowed under the Act.

It is not just about hospitality or winning contracts, it also covers so called “facilitation” payments which are often endemic in certain parts of the world, particularly West Africa, where it may be thought this is the only way to get things done.

We can help you when problems arise, and we can work with you to review your internal protocols, and it can be a part of the drills and workshops that we can provide you.
