Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABaC) refers to a set of principles, policies, and practices aimed at preventing, detecting, and addressing bribery and corruption in various sectors. These include business, government, and non-profit organizations. The two terms, “bribery” and “corruption,” are often used together because they’re closely related despite representing distinct aspects of unethical behaviour.

The main objectives of ABaC efforts are to prevent, detect, respond and remediate.

ABaC efforts are crucial for several reasons such as:

Ethical and Moral Standards. They promote ethical behaviour and uphold moral standards in both the public and private sectors.

Economic Development. Reducing corruption fosters economic stability and development by ensuring that resources are allocated fairly and transparently.

Legal Compliance. ABAC measures help organizations comply with national and international laws and regulations, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act.

Reputation and Trust. Maintaining an anti-bribery and anti-corruption stance enhances an organization’s reputation. It also builds trust among stakeholders, including customers, investors, and the public.

Risk Mitigation. ABAC efforts reduce the legal, financial, and reputational risks associated with bribery and corruption, which can lead to severe penalties and damage to an organization’s brand.

This Anti Bribery & Corruption Course aims to raise awareness and also explains the four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act.

It looks at the fine line between gifts and bribes; when is it acceptable to give a gift or hospitality? When might they be seen as a bribe?
ABaC also explains what you should look out for – the signs that suggest that bribery might be taking place. It looks at what you should do if you’ve been given a gift or hospitality and think it might be a bribe. It also looks at what you should do if you suspect someone else is involved in bribery.
