We invite you to join us for a one-of-a-kind seminar on the UK Bribery Act 2010. You will have the rare opportunity to hear directly from Richard Alderman, Director of the Senior Fraud Office in the UK, and Roderick Macauley, Criminal Law Advisor at the UK Ministry of Justice, both of whom were responsible for drafting and implementing the act itself.
This seminar is designed for executives, compliance officers and those who face the challenge of integrating the requirements of good corporate governance in today’s global climate as set forth in the UK Bribery Act.
The Bribery Act of 2010 is an act of the UK’s Parliament which came into force on 1 July 2011. It is one of the most extensive pieces of UK legislation and poses significant operational and managerial issues for all companies, partnerships and individuals based in the country, as well as foreign companies and individuals having conducted business with the UK.
Participants in this seminar will have the exclusive opportunity to hear and discuss the new form of corporate liability concerning “relevant commercial organizations”, who they are and how they are affected, as well as the policy surrounding the act for collaborative efforts in corporate good governance. They will also receive an inside view into the history and genesis leading up to the legislation, policy drivers and the need for reform in the pervasive area of bribery today.
The seminar consists of two half days, beginning at 13:00 on 16 April and ending at 13:30 on 17 April. In the evening all participants are invited to a joint dinner with Mr. Alderman and Mr. Macauley at a typical Viennese restaurant. The cost for the seminar is 1,650 EUR. Seminar fees made payable to IACA are VAT exempt as IACA maintains the VAT exemption status of an international organization.
