16 October 2018

The Select Committee on the Bribery Act 2010 hears evidence from compliance and risk management experts and an OECD official as part of its post-legislative scrutiny inquiry.

Witnesses

Tuesday 16 October in Committee Room 4, Palace of Westminster

At 10.35am

  • Mark Anderson, Partner and head of Corporate Intelligence, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)
  • John Bray, Director, Control Risks

At 11.35am

  • France Chain, Senior Legal Analyst, Anti-Corruption Division, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

Possible questions

  • How have companies responded to the Bribery Act since it came into force? Has this response changed over time?
  • How should SMEs go about developing or updating their anti-bribery and corruption policies, potentially with limited resources?
  • A number of concepts in the Bribery Act, such as adequate procedures and associated persons, have been criticised for lacking clarity. Do you think understanding of these areas is improving with time?
  • How does the OECD view the UK's track record on prosecutions under the Bribery Act?
  • Is enforcement of the Bribery Act 2010 resourced to the satisfaction of the OECD, and are the funding models of the SFO and the NCA capable of delivering effective enforcement of bribery in the UK and by UK companies abroad?
  • How effective is the UK's Bribery Act by comparison with anti-bribery legislation in other OECD countries, and is the Act keeping pace with developments in other countries?
