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.
