In light of recent investigations and looming prosecutions globally in the extractive industries, it is clear that in order to conduct business in regions that have traditionally rated poorly on the global transparency index, it is critical that businesses have a robust compliance programme in place that incorporates the cultural, legal and strategic challenges of operating in Australia’s higher risk trading partners. It is no longer sufficient to simply have a policy in place; you must be able to demonstrate its practical application and you need to ensure that every member of your organisation, from the staff on the ground through to the CEO, is fully conversant in local and international anti-corruption compliance requirements.
The must-attend conference for oil, gas & mining producers and their suppliers and sub-contractors, C5’s Bootcamp on Anti-Corruption: Extractive Industries will bring together in-house counsel and ethics and compliance officers from the leading regional and multi-national corporations, who will openly share their thoughts and experiences in implementing and maintaining robust internal compliance regimes to tackle corruption and bribery risks, whilst remaining competitive in a tough economic climate.
Through interactive panel discussions which encourage and promote delegate participation, hear examples of transactions and commercial practices that present significant corruption and bribery risks, and gain implementable insights that you can take back to your company to address and resolve your risks. Our expert speaker faculty will make clear how your company needs to prepare in response to increasing anti-corruption investigations and enforcement in Australia, by:
- Detecting fraud and minimising your exposures through active monitoring
- Cutting through red tape without paying bribes: minimising corruption and facilitation payment risks when obtaining regulatory approvals
- Identifying and overcoming compliance challenges in West, East, and Sub-Saharan Africa
- Communicating compliance standards through training programs tailored to an Australian audience unfamiliar with corruption risk
- Structuring community development donations and corporate social responsibility projects without running afoul of international anti-corruption laws
- Implementing the required controls for your local joint ventures: what regulators will expect in terms of compliance and monitoring
