SFO - Serious Fraud Office

Adequate procedures

What guidance is there about the adequate procedures companies might put in place to prevent people associated with them from bribing?  Does the SFO intend to publish its own guidance on this?

On 30 March 2011 the Ministry of Justice published The Bribery Act 2010 Guidance [external site] which covers the procedures that commercial organisations can put in place to prevent people associated with them from bribing.

On the same day the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Director of the Serious Fraud Office issued joint guidance for prosecutors setting out the Directors' approach to deciding whether to bring a prosecution under the Act.
