New Database Tracks FCPA Enforcement



The James Mintz Group has created a new database "Where The Bribes Are" to track the penalties in U.S. government Foreign Corrupt Practices Act cases since its enactment in 1977. The database is showcased in the form of an interactive international map where each country is shaded respective to the amount of penalties assessed for FCPA violations in that country. The search could be filtered by industry with information available on the particular cases which correspond to the FCPA penalties.

According to the database, FCPA penalties across all sectors total $4.04 billion and energy leads the other sectors with $2.03 billion in penalties. China's corruption risk is high across all sectors while Nigeria leads all nations in the aggregate dollar amount of FCPA penalties.

Take a look at this valuable and easy to use resource.
