The Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act was originally published by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in November 2012 to provide companies, practitioners, and the public with detailed information about the statutory requirements of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) while also providing insight into DOJ and SEC enforcement practices through hypotheticals, examples of enforcement actions and anonymized declinations, and summaries of applicable case law and DOJ opinion releases.
Although many aspects of the Guide continue to hold true today, the last eight years have also brought new cases, new laws, and new policies. The Second Edition of the Guide reflects these updates, including new case law on the definition of the term “foreign official” under the FCPA, the jurisdictional reach of the FCPA, and the FCPA’s foreign written laws affirmative defense.
