In light of the latest developments by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), commercial organisations must now be extremely wary about the ways in which they conduct themselves when dealing with their businesses and others.
The recent implementation and enforcement of the Guidelines on Adequate Procedures pursuant to Section 17A (5) of the MACC Act necessitates that commercial organisations set in place a compliance programme encompassing five key principles (T.R.U.S.T.) to prevent corporate liability charges. The implication of this is that organisations must now look within, assess past behaviours that will now be caught under the new Act, and prepare adequate and all-encompassing policies so as not to violate any laws on this front.
In this webcast, we will address various topics on anti-bribery and corruption for commercial organisations including:
Risks of bribery such as gifts, entertainment and hospitality, charitable contributions, and dealings with third parties;
How to deal with improper solicitations, briberies, and other corrupt activities arising during the course of business;
Policies and processes that need to be set in place including whistleblowing policies and dawn raid guidelines;
The need for ongoing compliance by way of training and awareness and continuous improvement; and
Relevant foreign laws and examples of cases where commercial organisations were held liable for corruption.
