The FCPA Resource Guide in Chinese

A common problem I encounter in my practice is the shortage of Chinese-language materials on anti-corruption topics. China-based employees often want to know more about the FCPA and anti-corruption enforcement, but nearly all of the most valuable resources are available only in English.

The U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission issued A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“Resource Guide”) in November 2012. The Resource Guide stands as the definitive guidance document from the U.S. Government regarding its enforcement of the FCPA.

Covington & Burling decided to translate the full text of the Resource Guide into Chinese for companies and organizations with China-based employees who want to know more about how the U.S. government interprets and enforces the FCPA.

The Chinese translation of the Resource Guide can be found here. We hope it will be a valuable resource for the anti-corruption community.
