How the DOJ Looks at Compliance Programs in an Enforcement Action – Part II


Today’s post is Part II in our two-part series of how the Department of Justice (DOJ) looks at compliance programs during the pendency of an enforcement action. Today we will review how a prosecutor may review the existence and effectiveness of a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance program based upon the Principles of Federal Prosecution of Business Organizations (“the Principles) and an analysis of what is an effective compliance program under the US Sentencing Guidelines (“the Guidelines). Both yesterday and today’s post are based upon the tract “Complying with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: A Practical Primer” (herein “the Primer”), published by the ABA Criminal Justice Section, Global Anti-Corruption Task Force.
