Why attend the Bribery Act Conference 2011?

The Bribery Act will come into force on 1 July 2011, repealing and replacing England’s old and much-criticised laws with a new comprehensive anti-bribery code. While the Act may change less from an individual’s perspective, it puts significant pressure on corporate entities doing business in the UK to ensure they have anti-corruption procedures in place before July 2011.This timely conference will examine in detail the impact The Bribery Act will have both on individuals and corporate entities, and tackle each of the offences covered by the Act. In attending, you will receive detailed examination of the processes and procedures that will need to be put in place, and practical guidance on how to deal with these.To ensure that you get up to date with only the areas of most interest to you, this conference may be attended as:
  • A full-day event (accredited for 5.5 CPD hours)
