About the Authors
  • The OECD Convention on Bribery established an international standard for compliance with anti-corruption rules, and has subsequently been adopted by the thirty-four OECD members and six non-member countries. As a result of the Convention and national implementation laws, companies and managers now risk tough sanctions if they are caught bribing foreign officials. The UK Bribery Act 2010 is only one example of this development. The second edition of this, the only commentary on the Convention, provides law practitioners, company lawyers and academic researchers with comprehensive guidance on the OECD standards. It includes case examples as well as the FCPA Resource Guide 2012 and the 2009 OECD Recommendation for Further Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials with Annexes I and II.

    • Offers a comparative criminal law perspective by examining the implementation of the Convention in all OECD members and six non-member countries
    • Includes the 2009 OECD Recommendation for Further Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials with Annexes I and II, as well as the Phase 3 monitoring procedure and reports, in order to provide an overview of OECD standards and country monitoring
    • Includes the FCPA Resource Guide 2012 and discusses FCPA enforcement in the USA
