The Anti-Corruption & FCPA Compliance Committee assists U.S. companies operating in India to manage the adverse effects of corruption on the business environment. It provides a forum for members to meet for discussions on varied topics such as anti-corruption challenges, code of ethics, anti-corruption best practices – export compliance, United Nations Convention against Corruption (UUNCAC), POCA etc. The committee conducts meetings at regular intervals and webinars to discuss current issues and update members with the latest developments relating to the subject.
With the ongoing changes in India and global business environment coupled with COVID-19 challenges, there is an increasing momentum around anti-corruption and regulatory enforcement activity. The committee has been organizing an annual Anti-Corruption Compliance and Risk Management Master Class for the past 6 years and continues to do so. The class focuses on recent trends in FCPA and anti-corruption enforcement and how they affect corporate compliance programs, as well as how legislation affects business, both in the U.S. and abroad.
