About this Course
This online course is designed to help organisations understand the different types of bribery and put suitable measures in place to meet the legislative requirements of the Bribery Act 2010.
Bribery is one of the most common economic crimes in the UK. Nearly one quarter of businesses in the UK have been exposed to it in some way.
The Bribery Act 2010, which was introduced on 1st July 2011, made it a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK to put adequate anti-bribery measures in place and train staff about bribery and corruption in the workplace. It is, by far, the strongest anti-bribery legislation in the UK. Failing to fully meet its requirements may lead to potential fines, reputational damage and even imprisonment.
The course is ideal for anyone who could be exposed to bribery and/or corruption. It will teach them what to do if they are offered or promised a gift or hospitality which might count as a bribe.
Did you know: £1.4 trillion (US$1.75 trillion) changes hands globally in bribes every year – the equivalent of Canada’s entire GDP.
