About the course

Each time a company pays a bribe it’s contributing, even in a small way, to perpetuating a system of corruption that embeds poverty and equality. Poorly equipped schools, counterfeit medicine and elections decided by money are just some of the consequences of corruption and bribery. Corruption is perhaps the single greatest obstacle to economic and social development.  This is why countries have gone to such great lengths to outlaw and combat corruption in many forms. 

In the UK, this takes the form of the Bribery Act 2010. It’s a serious bit of legislation designed to combat financial crime and has major implications for both companies and individuals. This course covers what you need to know and will help you understand your responsibilities under the act.
