The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued long-expected guidance concerning the enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) on Nov. 14, 2012.

NACDL has been diligent in its efforts to achieve FCPA reform, including providing testimony before Congress. In February 2012, NACDL joined the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform and more than 30 other trade and business groups on a letter to the DOJ and SEC identifying several concerns regarding criminal enforcement of the FCPA in connection with official guidance that DOJ had promised to issue in order to bring clarity to the law.
