As U.K. Bribery Act enforcement continues, individuals and corporations with a presence in the U.K. face strict legislation that not only complies with the requirements of the OECD Convention, but exceeds the scope of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
The U.K. Bribery Act is a demanding statute that requires companies to employ due diligence in preventing violations when conducting business in foreign countries. Companies are best positioned to minimise violations by implementing anti-bribery programmes into their operations.
This course provides you with relevant information on the current legal and regulatory framework of the movement to combat bribery in international trade.

Identify key points of the U.K. Bribery Act, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other international anti-bribery initiatives

Identify common risk factors when conducting a bribery risk assessment
Ascertain the most effective ways to respond to bribery-related issues

Online Self-Study Troubleshooting Guide:
Problem: When I attempt to access my courses from “My Online Learning,” the course never launches, or I receive an error message saying my pop-up blocker needs to be turned off.
Solution: Your web browser must be configured to allow pop-ups in order to access ACFE Self-Study courses. Your browser may prompt you to allow pop-ups, or you may have to allow them manually. You may either allow them for all sites, or allow them just for the
For information on how to manage your pop-up blocker settings in a specific browser, click the link below that corresponds to the browser you are using:
Also note that many toolbars, such as the Google Toolbar and Yahoo! include pop-up blockers as well. If you have one or more toolbars installed on your browser with built-in pop-up blockers, you must configure them to allow pop-ups.
Problem: When I click on a course from “My Online Learning,” I am presented with a login page, but my ACFE.com username and password won’t allow me to log in.
Solution: You do not have to log in a second time to access your online self-study. You most likely reached the login page because you clicked the link labeled “Click Here” as shown below:
Do not click that link; instead, allow your browser to automatically open the eLearning window on its own, which should happen after a few seconds. This will log you in automatically so that you can access your online courses.
Problem: I receive the following error when I try to load a different lesson with a course:
Solution: This occurs in Internet Explorer when trying to load a different lesson without closing the current lesson. This error can be avoided two different ways:
Always close the current lesson before going to another one. Always click the Close Window button (usually the red “X” in the upper right corner) of the current lesson before clicking on another lesson.
Use a different browser. This error seems to only occur in Internet Explorer, so using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome should resolve the issue (see below for links to download either of these browsers).
Other Troubleshooting Tips: If you encounter other errors, such as courses freezing or crashing, we recommend taking the following action:
Try a different browser. ACFE online self-study courses are designed to run on all modern web browsers, but if you encounter a problem that is not solved using one of the suggestions above, you can try using a different web browser to see if it eliminates the problem. We have most frequently seen where using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome has resolved an issue that was seen in Internet Explorer.
Mozilla Firefox can be downloaded
Google Chrome can be downloaded
