International Business Ethics and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act PD674

N EW

The dramatic increase of international business since the 1980s has been a highly complex and rather opaque process, despite the rhetoric both of globalization and the triumphant advance of capitalism. Enormous ethical challenges have emerged which need thoughtful and courageous practical resolution. What are the roles and responsibilities of multinational corporations, especially considering compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)? Where ethical norms are in conflict, owing to different cultural practices, which ethical norms ought to guide one's business conduct in other nations and cultures? Adopting host country norms is a way to respect the host culture. But shouldn't professionals resist host country norms that are morally unethical? This 3-day course provides a comprehensive coverage of international business ethics, fostering awareness of how the actions of multinational corporations' employees and agents can greatly impact whether or not a company is in ethical violation and, therefore, subject to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practice Act. This course provides an overview of the FCPA, but we strongly encourage participants to take the 2-day FCPA course (PD680) as standalone, if you are already familiar with international business ethics issues and challenges, or ideally, together (PD681). Each student will receive a copy of Ethics for International Business: Decision Making in a Global Political Economy, by John M. Kline

Understanding the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act PD680

N EW

I S S U E S

The dramatic increase of international business since the 1980s has produced enormous ethical business challenges which need thoughtful and courageous practical initiatives to prevent business losses and avoid non-compliance with federal and international anti-corruption laws. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons (and professionals) and business entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. This 2-day course addresses, in detail, the roles and responsibilities of multinational corporations' obligation to comply with this Act. FCPA violations can be devastating, and with several large companies receiving fines in upwards of $1 billion in 2010, it's important for companies conducting business internationally to understand and comply with the FCPA. The actions of your employees and agents can greatly impact whether or not your company is in FCPA compliance. All employees, whether staff associates or officers, who interact with foreign governments and businesses, must clearly understand the laws and how to follow them. We offer practical training on how to work successfully with foreign businesses and governments without violating US laws. Each student will receive a copy of The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practice Act and the U.K. Bribery Act Pocketbook

CSEF steels can provide higher efficiencies in power and process plants in high temperature services. But since they gain their exceptional high temperature creep rupture properties based on a specific condition of microstructure, rather than the primary chemical composition of the materials, manufacturing and fabrication processes must be controlled very carefully to insure that the appropriate microstructure is achieved.
