Australian laws governing anti-bribery and corruption operate at both the Commonwealth and state and territory levels. These laws can apply to individuals and companies for bribery and corruption both inside and outside Australia. Multiple government agencies (such as ASIC, Austrade and the Attorney-General’s Department) have released useful resources providing practical guidance on how to comply with your anti-bribery and corruption obligations – many of these resources are collated in this section. Develop an understanding of relevant Australian legislation and build your awareness of your legal obligations through these government resources. Learn about the risks of bribery and corruption in international transactions, and how you can prepare your business for the introduction of proposed laws that will require companies of all sizes to have adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery of foreign public officials.
