On Monday 2 December, the Australian Government introduced into the Senate the Crimes Legislation Amendment (Combatting Corporate Crime) Bill 2019 (Cth) (“Foreign Bribery Bill”). This Bill proposes to fundamentally shift the criminal liability landscape for corporations with respect to foreign bribery.

The Bill follows on from the Australian Government’s introduction of the Crimes Legislation Amendment (Combatting Corporate Crime) Bill 2017 (Cth) (the “2017 Bill”) two years ago, which had been allowed to lapse at the end of the previous Parliamentary session, ahead of the 2019 Australian federal election.
