Navigating Complex FCPA Matters
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq., makes it unlawful for entities or individuals to make payments to foreign government officials to aid in obtaining or retaining business or securing an unfair business advantage. In addition to the anti-bribery provision of the FCPA, the FCPA also requires companies whose securities are listed in the United States to make and keep records that accurately reflect the transactions of the corporation and to maintain an adequate system of internal accounting records.
In turn, the United States Department of Justice maintains primary responsibility for enforcement of the antibribery provisions, and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission typically maintains primary responsibility for enforcement of the accounting provisions.
