Webinar: Anti-Corruption Compliance for Importers and Exporters

Posted January 17, 2014

Recent media reports have featured Canadian companies that have been caught up in corrupt practices either at home or home or abroad. The penalties for companies that fail to comply with Canadian and other anti-corruption regimes are severe and the reputational exposure is even more significant.  Risk exposure is not limited to companies in the extractive sectors such as mining and oil & gas or to companies that sell to governments.  Recent cases have demonstrated that all sectors, including retail, manufacturing, consumer products, medical products, and hi-tech are vulnerable to compliance failures.
This webinar will:
  • Update most recent developments on Canadian anti-bribery enforcement
  • Cover recent amendments that have changed the landscape for enforcement and compliance
  • Outline elements of an effective anti-corruption compliance program
  • Provide guidance on best practice in compliance and in dealings with your distributors and vendors
  • Outline strategies on navigating the tricky areas of vetting third parties and business partners and overseeing gifts/hospitality
