The first in a multipart interview, GRC Solutions (grcsolutions.com.au) Managing Director, Julian Fenwick, shares his experience, perspective, and practice, with respect to anti-bribery and compliance challenges for multinationals which are either based in Australia and/or Asia, or with subsidiaries in the region. Julian shares his views with how regulatory awareness in the region has impacted compliance efforts, addressing how anti-bribery compliance has become “globalized.” For multinationals based in Australia and/or Asia, which are engaging with the United States, Great Britain, and other countries in their commercial activities, the need to address the FCPA, The Bribery Act and other international anti-bribery conventions in business operations has never been greater.
In other words, the challenge of conducting business from Australia and Asia is much greater than local laws and regulations- it’s a global effort with significant training requirements. In this context, it’s imperative to provide consistent, yet tailored to the region and language, on-line training in order to instill employee compliance awareness, especially where there is increased risk.
