The Link Between FCPA Compliance And The Worldwide Marketplace There is no question that over recent decades the business world has become increasingly interconnected on a global scale. Small and large companies alike are learning ways to boost efficiency, maximize profitability, and reach the largest number of prospective customers, by developing and maintaining international relationships with companies abroad, and at home. Companies have the capacity to tap into the professional experience and resources of businesses from around the world when they work with individuals and organizations overseas. For any company that would like to find new customer bases in the international marketplace, these relationships are necessary as these types of collaborative partnerships enable companies to find the best possible solutions for meeting customer demand. Taking full advantage of international collaboration doesn't simply help the bottom line, though; in addition to providing solutions for today's business problems, partnering with like-minded individuals from diverse backgrounds is essential to staying up-to-date with consumer demand and industry-wide innovation. While these relationships can be invaluable to businesses of any size, it is also increasingly becoming important that business owners very carefully monitor operations - including all international activities - in order to ensure that their company maintains full FCPA compliance. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act - FCPA - was initially put into law in 1977 in order to assist in the oversight of international business relationships. Under the act's provisions, companies are held responsible for ensuring that all relations with international third parties are fully vetted and monitored for illegal activities. In situations where a company's representatives do not themselves take part in illegal activities, or even in instances when they are unaware that the activities are taking place, businesses may still be held liable. As marketplaces become increasingly global, and business relationships become more complex and interconnected, many companies are opting to adopt their own FCPA compliance programs in order to help provide full transparency to government agencies, maintain foreign and domestic investor confidence, and continue to best serve their customers and clients. Even in the current digital world, adopting such a compliance program can be a complex task, because of the sheer amount of financial, marketing and customer data that must be sifted and assessed. Business owners would do well to build relationships with assorted fraud-prevention agencies and develop a consistent approach for maintaining comprehensive oversight of all relations with international third parties. As the demands for greater accountability and transparency continue on, from government agencies and also private investors, there are also quite a few professional groups specializing in assisting companies with establishing FCPA due diligence processes. An international network of investigators with diverse special areas of practice in business and law are often maintained by these companies. For both their exceptional access to data from countries all over the world and for the ability of their agents on the ground to execute first-hand investigative work, these services can be priceless. A group that specializes in due diligence compliance needs to have associations with a variety of national and international programs that provide oversight for fraud-prevention, including expertise from both the public and private sectors.
