The impact of the Bribery Act 2010 is significant for most UK businesses and employers. The statutory definition of 'bribery' means that commercial organisations of any size must review their procedures and look to their lawyers for the development of policies and training to establish anti-corruption safeguards.

This toolkit contains a mixture of draft policies, procedural checklists and other instruments demonstrating due diligence to assist practitioners, including:

  • governance policies
  • staff checks checklist
  • file reviews
  • accounting procedures and checklists
  • risk assessment policies
  • a register of expenditure.
