ABAC Laws and Regulations Around the World Playbook: Your complete guide to understand anti-corruption legislation, wherever you are in the world!

April 20, 2021

Governments around the world are responding to the need to enact new legislation to fight corruption. Until the last 20 years or so, most laws and regulations were relatively weak, other than the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). However, a growing intolerance for corruption and increased outrage at high-profile cases has changed the landscape considerably, spurring the more recent U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA) 2010 and other similar stringent Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABAC) laws.

Bribery and corruption can cause extreme harm to organisations and economies, causing distrust, financial loss, criminal consequences and loss of reputation. As we see more and more countries promulgating new and more sophisticated antibribery and corruption legislation as well as aggressive enforcement by government regulators we know it can get complicated to understand an keep tracking of all of this information.

After the huge success and popularity of our short three-part article series: “ABAC Laws and Regulations Around the World” Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 we are proud to announce the launch of this playbook. ABAC Laws and Regulations Around the World Playbook goes into each of the laws and regulations and discusses the importance, mechanisms and action points to each.

Our Playbook is your complete guide to understand each law and regulation related to Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption practices and more. A comprehensive 28 pages guide that include the following laws and regulations:
