Will your organisation be at risk of prosecution?

As detailed on the The Act and how it may affect your organisation page, the Act applies to all businesses no matter what size therefore no one should consider their Company too small to escape scrutiny.

However you are at greater risk if:

You use 3rd parties such as contractors, sub-contractors, consultants, distributors and agents.


You have interactions with Governments (local, national or international).


You carry out business with high risk countries such as China, Southern & West Africa, Russian Federation, South America & the Middle East. The latest corruption perception index by country can be found at www.transparency.org

Clearly any Company that is involved in Imports or Exports will be high risk.
