Description

Since 2007, there have been multiple investigations and charges by the DOJ, SEC and non-U.S. government enforcement agencies against pharmaceutical/life sciences companies for violations of anti-corruption laws. These recent investigations emphasize the difficult compliance challenges and enormous liability exposure faced by life sciences companies operating outside the U.S. In addition, high-profile investigations of multi national corporations headquartered outside the U.S., illustrate that the DOJ and the SEC are pursuing non-U.S. companies as well.

Recent enforcement actions show that the government has turned its focus towards the pharma and the life sciences industries, and these industries are particularly vulnerable to investigations because of their numerous contacts with “government officials” outside the U.S. While most pharmaceutical and life sciences companies have robust compliance programs in place and understand what their obligations are under the FCPA and local anti-corruption laws, they still struggle with creating and implementing policies and procedures that truly control corruption problems.

ACI’s FCPA and International Anti-Corruption for Pharma & Life Sciences has been designed to focus on solutions for problematic FCPA and anti-corruption challenges. ACI has brought together the most experienced FCPA practitioners, pharmaceutical and life sciences counsel, compliance officers, and heads of internal audit to create a forum for industry practitioners to share their experiences and best practices for dealing with anti-corruption challenges. Learn how pharma and life sciences industries are uniquely affected by the FCPA and get industry specific solutions. Attendees will also benefit from the extensive written materials prepared by the speakers especially for this conference. Register now to ensure your place at what is sure to be a sold-out event.
