Importance of Anti-Bribery and Corruption Training

It is a financial crime for organisations and the individuals working for them to offer or accept a bribe. For employees who regularly represent their organisation on trips, it’s important to understand the risks of bribery when travelling for business and dealing with partners and suppliers. A business could be found guilty of bribery and corruption, even if the offence is committed by an associated person. Training your employees to identify instances of bribery as well as avoiding them is key to reinforcing the ethical and legal obligations for businesses while developing a culture of compliance across the business.

Under bribery regulations, it is recommended that organisations conduct a proportionate and risk-based approach to due diligence. This enables organisations to understand explicitly the individuals which they are dealing with. The UK Bribery Act states that organisations can be held liable for corruption conducted by associated persons.

The Section 7 of the UK Bribery Act 2010 incorporates an important note on “failure to prevent bribery.” This section focuses on company liability for bribery offences committed by employees or associated persons which could demonstrate the intention to create an advantage in the conduct of business for their organisation.

Failure to prevent bribery is a vital element of anti-bribery and corruption regulations. If an organisation can demonstrate that they have implemented adequate procedures to protect against bribery and corruption, then they are protected, and the risks are mitigated. However, if businesses cannot demonstrate the presence of adequate measures taken, then they will be at risk of breaching anti-bribery regulation.
