World-Check is hosting a seminar in London where speakers will explain how multinational companies can minimize bribery and corruption risk. The organisers advise that booking well in advance is essential as recent events on the same theme attracted over 200 compliance professionals and were quickly sold out.

The overwhelming response to our past two Bribery Bill seminars confirms that companies are seeking guidance on how to prepare and implement anti-corruption compliance programmes, especially solutions that can be applied to parties performing services on their behalf in foreign markets.

World-Check, the leading provider of global risk intelligence, is due to host a seminar in London in May, where speakers will explain how companies can minimize bribery and corruption risk.

The UK Bribery Act 2010 is to be ratified by Parliament shortly, and companies can expect to be held liable for bribery carried out on their behalf anywhere in the world. Detective Superintendent Colin Cowan, Head of the UK's Overseas Anti Corruption and Bribery Unit, is key speaker at this event which is the latest in a series of risk management seminars hosted by World-Check around the world.

"The overwhelming response to our past two Bribery Bill seminars confirms that companies are seeking guidance on how to prepare and implement anti-corruption compliance programmes, especially solutions that can be applied to parties performing services on their behalf in foreign markets." said Daniel Peak, Chief Executive Officer of World-Check. "World-Check anti-corruption solutions offer multinationals a proactive approach to understanding business partners and potential acquisition targets in line with international best practice."

The seminar will be held at The May Fair Hotel (Radisson Edwardian) in central London on Tuesday May 25 2010. The organisers advise that booking well in advance is essential as recent events on the same theme attracted over 200 compliance professionals and were quickly sold out.
