Course Synopsis

MACC Act Section 17A, which was enforced on 1 June 2020, introduces corporate liability for corruption offences. However, a lot of people are still not aware of its implications. In March 2021, an offshore maintenance company became the first company to be charged under the new Section 17A, and the directors were called for further investigations. Hence it is very important for all commercial organisations to take immediate steps to implement robust compliance programmes with “Adequate Procedures” in order to avail themselves to the statutory defence under Section 17A. In this course, the trainer will talk about the main forms of corruption and the impact on individuals and corporations under MACC Act. She will also cover practical steps to address non-compliance for individuals and corporations.
