Anti-Corruption Compliance in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Industry LIVE Webcast
Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, the United States Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating and prosecuting alleged bribery and corruption overseas by US pharmaceutical and medical device companies.
These law suits have generated global interest in stronger enforcement of anti-corruption and bribery laws and the addition of new regulations in several countries.
Many countries now require greater transparency and more ethical business practices. However, many multi-national companies remain unsure of or misinterpret the regulations of countries, fail to develop robust compliance programs, or fail to train employees, exposing them into significant legal risks nationally and globally.
