Anti-bribery and corruption laws – an international guide


This guide from CMS offers a broad overview of anti-corruption laws across Europe and select emerging markets. Key questions are posed for each jurisdiction, including:

- What are the offences?
- Who can be liable and when?
- What are the penalties?
- What are the defences?

Despite an increasingly open and international marketplace, there is no international anti-corruption law or standard. Legislation across Europe and the emerging markets is complex and becoming more stringent. The UK’s new Bribery Act, which came into force on 1 July 2011, is perhaps the most well publicised recent example of this, but there have also been recent changes in Russia, Spain and Ukraine.
