As mentioned previously, conduct that gives rise to potential liability under the FCA can also trigger liability under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The latest issue of Sidley Austin’s Anti-Corruption Quarterly newsletter, a quarterly publication that provides updates on the latest in FCPA regulatory, enforcement, and compliance trends, is now available. In this edition:
- Congressional FCPA Investigations: Is There Another Sheriff In Town?
- Burden Shifts to DOJ for Proving Facts Used to Increase Penalties
- Global Watch: Mexico Enacts Broad Anti-Corruption Law
- In The Interim
- Compliance Corner: Training and Certification
Conduct that is frequently challenged under the FCA potentially violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). For example, payments to health care providers can implicate not only the FCA, but also the FCPA if those health care providers are employed by a foreign government.
With that in mind, we recommend the latest issue of Sidley Austin’s Anti-Corruption Quarterly newsletter, a quarterly publication that provides updates on the latest developments in the evolving area of global anti-bribery/FCPA regulation, analysis of current enforcement trends and new laws/regulations, as well as practical tips on improving anti-corruption compliance measures.
