Ethics policies and Codes of Conduct need to address a host of important compliance issues on a transnational basis.  Among these issues are the impact of expanded anti-bribery and corruption (ABAC) laws; laws addressing financial matters, such as money-laundering and securities trading; and laws implementing international sanctions.  This webinar focuses on:  (1) the key ethics issues in this area and the need for a cross-border view; (2) how to use ethics policies and codes of conduct to mitigate risk; and (3) how to establish an ethical culture within a global enterprise.   Case studies will be used to illustrate the major policy/legal issues.     

Topics to be covered:

Key ethics issues and their transnational reach:

  • ABAC developments, including the recent U.K. Bribery Act which expands cover to private transactions and has extra-territorial application;
  • The growing international scope of U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement;
  • Continued efforts to regulate money laundering and insider dealing; and
  • The growth of export control as a significant compliance issue.

Managing and investigating ethics and compliance issues:

  • Whistle-blowing;
  • Building an ethical/compliance regime, including addressing data protection issues; and
  • Linking ethics to professional development.

Establishing a global ethical culture and the role of the Governance Professional, the Corporate Secretary and the Secretary to the Board.
