The FCPA Blog is the world leader for news and commentary concerning white-collar crime, enforcement, and compliance.
About 100,000 unique visitors read the FCPA Blog each month. More than 16,000 subscribers receive our daily digest and email alerts.
The FCPA Blog is pro business and pro compliance.
Our mission is to help compliance professionals and others everywhere understand how corruption happens, what it does to people and institutions, and how anti-corruption laws and compliance programs work.
We also cover the enforcement agencies, and the public and private institutions that promote compliance and the fight against graft.
We've published more than 4,500 posts by 150 different authors.
In addition to reporting current news and commentary, the FCPA Blog is a place where the compliance community can share ideas with a broad international readership.
We set out eight years ago to cover all FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act*) enforcement actions -- the first to do that in real-time.
Over the years, our coverage has expanded to include a wide variety of white-collar crime topics -- including commercial bribery, AML, trade sanctions, organized crime, and securities and accounting fraud.
We also cover SEC and IRS whistleblower actions and False Claims Act cases.
The FCPA Blog is published by Oil Patch Asia LLC (Delaware).

*The FCPA is a United States federal law enacted in 1977. It prohibits paying bribes to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Violations of the anti-bribery provisions are prosecuted by the Department of Justice and are punishable by up to five years in prison. The Securities and Exchange Commission enforces the accounting provisions of the FCPA, which require U.S. public companies to have adequate internal controls to prevent and detect bribery and fraud, and to keep accurate and complete books and records.
