Failure to prevent: meeting the requirements of the UK Bribery Act 2010
Section 7 of the UK Bribery Act 2010 makes it an offence for a relevant commercial organisation to fail to prevent bribery – but if an incident occurs, an organisation can defend itself by proving that it had adequate procedures in place to prevent people associated with it from bribing.

The law suggests a risk based approach with six guiding principles, and one of these is the provision of training - not only to immediate staff, but also to those deemed to be ‘associated’ with the organisation – which increases the scope and reach of the Act. But what does the law define as a relevant commercial organisation? Or an ‘associated person’? ‘What is considered to be a ‘commercial function’?

There is no doubt that the application of bribery prevention procedures is of significant interest to those investigating bribery. Are you confident that your procedures pass muster?

Cifas Fraud and Cyber Academy experts Chris Felton and Ian Sales examine Section 7 of the Bribery Act and discuss its reach and requirements for commercial and non-commercial organisations. They also explore effective risk management procedures that organisations can put in place to support their compliance with the Act, and discuss the different levels of training and learning that can be implemented for different roles and responsibilities within the workforce.
