Consultation on guidance about Bribery Act

Close date: 8 November 2010

The Bribery Act 2010 introduced a corporate offence of a failure to prevent bribery by persons working on behalf of a business, which comes into force in April 2011. An organisation has a defence if it has put in place adequate measures to prevent bribery. The consultation document sets out six guiding principles and examples of measures that organisations can take to prevent bribery. The consultation seeks views on the guidance.
