INDIA SUMMIT ON

ANTI-CORRUPTION COMPLIANCE AND ENFORCEMENT

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

About

17 Companies to speak at ACI’s India Summit on Anti-Corruption Compliance and Enforcement

American Express, Baker Hughes, Bayer Material Science, Bharti Enterprises, Covidien, Credit Suisse, General Electric, Goodyear, Intel, Johnson & Johnson Medical, Monsanto, Pfizer, SAP, Siemens, Tata, Texas Instruments, and Wal-Mart.

Anti-bribery investigations and prosecutions are increasing in frequency and underway across the globe. Learn what it takes to ensure compliance while doing business in India

Foreign companies operating in India face complex anti-corruption compliance challenges. India recently fell to the 85th position in Transparency International’s Global Corruption Perception Index and compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is an increasingly urgent priority. Regulators around the world are vigorously stepping up enforcement efforts as corruption in India continues to rise.

Indian and foreign companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges cannot afford to run afoul of anti-bribery regulations or fall prey to loopholes that may trigger an FCPA violation. In recent years the internationalization of anti-corruption enforcement actions has demonstrated that all global organizations must understand the jurisdiction of the FCPA and ramifications of a violation. With recent settlements resulting in record-setting sanctions, disgorgement of profits, and the imposition of independent monitors, companies must reassess and enhance their existing anti-corruption compliance measures to ensure they are adequate given the magnitude of penalties and increasing frequency of corruption enforcement globally.

If your company is doing business in India, you must have a comprehensive anti-corruption compliance program in place and be prepared to act promptly and effectively to remedy any problems that do arise. The absence of preventative measures and failure to understand local customs and regulations is otherwise likely to lead to a damaging and costly investigation or enforcement action.

This one-of-a-kind Summit on Anti-Corruption Compliance brings together an exceptional faculty of seasoned corporate ethics and compliance executives, senior attorneys and government officials, who will provide you with a comprehensive update on the anti-bribery landscape in India and how to implement an effective anti-corruption program tailored to doing business in India. You will learn how to:

  • Conduct effective anti-corruption due diligence in mergers and acquisitions
  • Deal with requests for bribes when obtaining regulatory approvals
  • Ensure compliance of your local agents, business partners and intermediaries
  • Prepare for increased scrutiny of facilitating payments or “speed money”
  • Implement a robust anti-corruption compliance program that overcomes legal and cultural challenges
  • Create a corporate ethics and compliance culture starting at the top
  • Avoid pitfalls of gift giving, entertaining and hospitality

PLUS! Get the latest information on:

  • Current FCPA enforcement trends
  • Landmark FCPA settlements, fines, penalties and imposition of monitors
  • Compliance risks for companies and individuals doing business in India
