How to RESIST paying bribes

In 2009, companies from the private sector (mainly in Europe) decided, through the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to develop in cooperation with the World Economic Forum, the UN Global Compact and Transparency International a training tool known as RESIST (Resisting Extortions and Solicitations in International Transactions).

It’s available here.

RESIST is based on 22 real-life scenarios of solicitation and extortion demands. It is intended primarily as a training tool to increase private companies’ employees’ awareness on the risk of solicitation, and to propose practical tips to respond in a safe, ethical and efficient way in the event of a bribery attempt in the course of an international project life cycle.

In 2011, eleven French Companies have decided, through the French International Chamber of Commerce, to convert RESIST into a free e-learning module: E-Resist.

This e-learning module is now available in French and English on the ICC France website and will soon be accessible on the websites of the four major sponsors: ICC worldwide, World Economic Forum, the UN Global Compact and Transparency International.

It can be seen (in English) here.


Nathalie Raynaud is Corporate Compliance Director at Sanofi. She has contributed, with representatives of other French companies and the French International Chamber of Commerce, to the creation of E-resist, the e-learning version of RESIST. She can be contacted here.
