At long last, the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) released their guidance on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) compliance and enforcement issues.

The guidance is not a panacea for the difficult issues that global companies navigate on a daily basis, but the 120-page A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “Resource Guide”) will prove to be a valuable resource. It provides a one-stop compilation of information and distillation of principles that will be helpful “from the board room to the supply room.”
