Compendium

Welcome to the TRACE Compendium

The TRACE Compendium is a user-friendly and fully searchable database of comprehensive, yet succinct, summaries of international anti-bribery enforcement actions. Most actions included in the TRACE Compendium are Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) enforcement actions brought by the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and/or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). However, the TRACE Compendium also includes the growing number of international anti-bribery enforcement actions brought by enforcement authorities outside of the United States, particularly amongst signatories to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.

Enforcement activity included in the TRACE Compendium shares one characteristic: the conduct at issue – the bribery – crosses an international border. Domestic anti-bribery prosecutions and investigations are outside the scope of the TRACE Compendium.

The summaries in the TRACE Compendium are continually revised to reflect new or improved sources of information.

Using information contained in the TRACE Compendium, TRACE publishes an annual report summarizing international enforcement actions. This Global Enforcement Report (GER) features charts and analysis of information collected by TRACE from court documents, company public filings, press releases, news reports and other publicly-available information.
