Anti-Bribery Legislation

What’s the issue?

Bribes paid by individuals and businesses to win public contracts help sustain corrupt systems and regimes. Tackling bribery helps build trust in public institutions, ensures strong democratic governments and sustainable development. To end corruption it is essential to look at all bribery conducted and enabled by UK individuals and companies, including banks, lawyers and accountants, both at home and abroad.
