US and UK Regulators Speak Out on Anti-Corruption Enforcement Trends and Priorities

Dec 06, 2016


A number of key trends and priorities in international anti-corruption enforcement emerged last week at the 33rd ACI International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, held November 29 – December 2 outside of Washington, DC. Leading prosecutors and regulators from the US and UK described skyrocketing international law enforcement coordination, announced both “sticks” and “carrots” to encourage self-disclosure and cooperation, and pledged again to hold individuals accountable for anti-corruption violations. Officials from the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) repeatedly emphasized these points in both their prepared remarks and their responses to questions.

On August 18, 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced that the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (“BNY Mellon”) had agreed to settle administrative charges that it violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) by providing internships and work experiences to family members of officials of a Middle Eastern sovereign wealth fund (the “Fund”).
