If your business organization is doing business in the global marketplace, it has risk under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Measured by the number of enforcement actions, 2016 was a record year in the nearly 40-year history of the FCPA.

As the below map pinpoints, 2016 FCPA enforcement actions involved conduct across the globe from Latin America to South America, to Eastern Europe to Africa, with a majority of enforcement actions focusing in whole or in part on conduct in China.

A component of FCPA best practices is training employees and third parties to recognize FCPA risk so that it can be pro-actively managed before it escalates into a global problem.
