Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
Many countries have laws or rules prohibiting gifts to people who are employed by the government of that country. In addition the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act prohibits the Company or any Company Representative from making a payment or giving anything of value to a foreign official or political party for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. This provision also applies to payments or offers of anything of value to intermediaries, sales representatives or agents if the Company Representative knows, or has reason to know, that the payment or offer will be used for a prohibited payment, gift or favor. Company Representatives must obey these laws.
