Clearer standards would improve FCPA compliance

Responding to an USA Today editorial opposing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act reform efforts, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey has an op-ed that offers some ideas to clarify the law.  Mukasey proposes adding a compliance defense and defining who is considered a foreign official under the statute.  “Unambiguous guidelines from the government, including information about cases it declines to prosecute, can help,” argues Mukasey.  “Standards are then clearer, and companies can operate in compliance knowing they will not be charged unfairly if they disclose, and correct, unlawful conduct.”
