The FCPA Blog is an international website for commentary and news about anti-corruption compliance and enforcement, with a mission of promoting enhanced anti-corruption compliance throughout the world.
The FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) is a United States federal law enacted in 1977. It prohibits companies from paying bribes to foreign government officials and political figures for the purpose of obtaining business. There are two parts to the FCPA; the anti-bribery provisions which are enforced by the Department of Justice and the accounting provisions which are enforced by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The FCPA Blog reports current news and developments and enables researchers to share their ideas with a broader international community of academics, practitioners, and government officials.
