TRACE Compendium

TRACE Compendium

The TRACE Compendium is a user-friendly and fully searchable database of international anti-bribery enforcement actions. All enforcement actions in the TRACE Compendium involve bribery of a government official across international borders. Domestic anti-bribery investigations and enforcement matters involving commercial bribery purely between private parties are not included in the TRACE Compendium.

Most cases 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). The TRACE Compendium also includes the growing number of international anti-bribery enforcement actions brought by authorities outside of the U.S., particularly amongst signatories to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
