The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) makes it unlawful to bribe foreign government officials to obtain new business or retain existing business. There is also a provision that requires keeping books and records that accurately reflect all transactions and to maintain adequate internal
Very importantly, and often overlooked, the FCPA applies to more than any individual of a company but also to any "third party" or "intermediaries" such as stockholders, agents or "partners" acting on behalf of the company

In order to avoid being held liable for corrupt third party
actions, it is critical that companies exercise due diligence and take
necessary precautions to ensure the third parties are reputable and qualified
partners and representatives that are engaged in lawful transactions.
Furthermore, it is critical that all documents and processes for vetting third parties are captured and maintained on a
regular basis. Obviously this can be a
time consuming and costly task.
Setting company policies and guidelines, developing manual methods of enforcement, and monitoring all activities and transactions for potential violations is time consuming and costly both in terms of resources and systems. Furthermore, this does not ensure that these rules will be followed.
