Spotlight on the FCPA Accounting Provisions: A Deep Dive into the “Lesser Explored” Bookkeeping and Internal Controls Provisions of the U.S. FCPA

Thursday, 29 July 2021 | 1:00 PM ET (6:00 PM GMT+1)

When many think of the U.S. FCPA, thoughts almost immediately turn first to the anti-bribery provision which prohibits bribery by a U.S. citizen or company of a foreign government official. But, as many have come to learn directly and has been witnessed over the past forty-plus years since the FCPA became law, a common enforcement mechanism utilized by the Government to raise charges under the FCPA has been the initiation of a civil action by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under the accounting provision of the FCPA. Allowing for both civil and criminal penalties, the accounting provisions give the SEC a wide expanse from which to levy punishment against a company or individual.


During this session, benefit from a discussion that will explore these provisions, providing attendees with practical guidance on how one may go about developing financial monitoring controls that will meet the SEC’s expectations. Also exploring the SEC’s recent enforcement of the accounting provision, Daniel will address any noted trends in such enforcement and highlight potential risk areas for companies (both public and private) and what steps you can take to proactively reduce your organization’s exposure.
