The FCPA Blog, established in 2007, was the first publication to cover the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in real-time.*
Since then we’ve published more than 7,000 posts by 600 different authors.
Our mission is to help compliance professionals and others everywhere understand how corruption happens, what it does to people and institutions, and how anti-corruption laws and compliance programs work.
We cover the enforcement agencies, and the public and private groups that promote compliance and the fight against graft.
The FCPA Blog is pro business and pro compliance.
Over the years, our coverage has expanded to include most areas of white-collar crime and enforcement.
*The FCPA is a United States federal law enacted in 1977. It prohibits paying bribes to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Violations of the anti-bribery provisions are prosecuted by the Department of Justice and are punishable by up to five years in prison. The Securities and Exchange Commission enforces the accounting provisions of the FCPA, which require U.S. public companies to have adequate internal controls to prevent and detect bribery and fraud, and to keep accurate and complete books and records.
