Anti-corruption enforcement is on the rise in the United States and worldwide-- international traders, as well as transportation and logistics companies, have been hit hard by enforcement actions. The case against Panalpina has been settled, but investigations involving Panalpina's customers and other freight forwarders are still ongoing. The UK Bribery Act was implemented in July 2011. Prudent companies in international trade and transportation or companies that do business abroad should be aware of the risks associated with anti-corruption legal regimes. The speakers will discuss measures that companies can take for compliance with these legal requirements and how to mitigate the risks associated with anti-corruption enforcement actions. The significance of the Panalpina and associated cases and the UK Bribery Act will be discussed.
