The UK Bribery Act 2010 comes into force on 1st July 2011 with legislation that is tougher than anywhere else in the world. This new legislation has a global reach and if your company operates in the UK it will apply to all your staff worldwide.

The Act includes a specific corporate offence which requires companies to demonstrate that adequate procedures are in place to prevent or minimise the opportunities for bribery by employees and agents. Adequate procedures need to include company-wide training to demonstrate your company’s anti-bribery policy.

In preparation for the enforcement of this legislation, Marlins is introducing a new online E-learning course: Business Principles. View a demonstration of the course here.
