Regulatory compliance solutions
In light of the introduction of the UK Bribery Act, which is due to take effect
later this year, and the ever increasing development and enforcement of the US
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the need to keep ahead of regulatory
is more important than ever. Companies around the globe face
increasingly difficult market conditions and mounting pressure to deliver
uncompromising compliance solutions on a tight budget, or with considerable
constraints. Risk is a part of every regulatory development, and those unable
up to date with those ever changing demands are susceptible to investigations,
fines and reputational damage.
