Abstract: 

On July 3, 2020, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released the 133-page A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (hereafter “Guide”) (Second Edition 2020).[1] The Guide contains detailed information and analysis regarding the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and related enforcement. Experts at the DOJ and SEC have worked extensively on the guide. Professionals at the Departments of Commerce and State have also contributed to the guide. The Guide tries to provide useful information to the public, including practitioners and enterprises of all shapes and sizes—from small businesses transacting abroad for the first time to multinational corporations with subsidiaries around the world.
