Anti-corruption compliance was a topic of interest in a limited number of countries ten years ago, but the past decade has seen the emergence of anti-corruption compliance systems in companies across the globe. This Study therefore looks at why companies adopt anti-corruption compliance mechanisms, with an eye towards encouraging more companies (including small- and medium-sized enterprises) to adopt such measures.
WEBINAR - What really motivates anti-corruption compliance?
23 September 2020, 15:00 Paris time
The new OECD Study on "Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance Drivers, Mechanisms, and Ideas for Change" was launched during a webinar on 23 September 2020. Informed by this Study, the webinar focused on the various factors that have driven companies to design systems to prevent, detect, and respond to the risk of corruption, such as legal and regulatory requirements, and enforcement and reputational risks. Panellists discussed some of the main challenges faced by companies looking to implement anti-corruption programmes, and explored potential solutions, including ways for governments, international organisations, and civil society to better support and accompany companies in their anti-corruption efforts.
