PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 13, 2012 - The Bribery Act in the UK has come into effect from 1 July 2011 and represents the biggest changes to UK laws in this area of business and commerce for many generations.. It reforms UK criminal law and provides an updated legal framework to deter bribery, both in the UK and internationally.

The introduction of  "failure to prevent" bribery means that companies unable to demonstrate that they have implemented  "adequate procedures" to prevent corrupt practices within their ranks or by third parties on their behalf, could be exposed to unlimited fines as well as other collateral consequences, such as debarment from government business from which you can expect to take away measures to protect your business from such enforcements under the expert guidance of Barry Vitou, Partner - Strategic Business Services and Neil McInnes, Senior Associate - Strategic Business Services from Pinsent Masons. Fines levied against the energy sector for bribery violations top $2 billion and dwarf other sectors.
