Paula Davis Discusses Anti-Bribery Risk Assessments

Play videoPaula Davis on Risk Assessments

Paula Davis discusses why a risk assessment is the starting point for your anti-bribery programme.

Under the UK Bribery Act, Adequate Procedures will only be sufficient defence against the new corporate crime of failing to prevent bribery if they are aligned with the specific risks impacting your business.  A tick-box approach will not protect you from the potentially very severe penalties for businesses prosecuted under the new legislation.  This commentary discusses the vital role a risk assessment plays in defining your anti-bribery anti-corruption programme and gives some practical advice on key considerations for doing it effectively.
