A joint UK Government / UK Chamber of Shipping event to preview guidance to shipping companies on compliance with anti-corruption legislation, including the Bribery Act 2010 to ships trading in parts of the world where corruption and small-scale solicitation of gifts are endemic. The guidance has been prepared by the UK Chamber, and the following bodies were engaged through the process: the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Department for Transport and the Cabinet Office. The guidance touches upon company procedures for the prevention of bribery, provides practical suggestions for ships’ Masters facing demands for unwarranted facilitation payments or gifts in ports and canals, and information on collective action initiatives aimed at tackling illicit demands.
Delegates will hear presentations from:
Roderick Macauley, Ministry of Justice
Tim Springett, UK Chamber of Shipping
Jake Storey, Maritime Anti-Corruption Network
All three speakers will then take part in a panel discussion to be moderated by Philip Roche of Norton Rose Fulbright LLP.
Light refreshments will be provided before and after the event, which will conclude by 4.00pm.
