Details

The Bribery Act 2010 was commenced on 1 July 2011, following the publication of Ministry of Justice guidance on bribery prevention for commercial organisation on 30 March that same year. The Act replaced an old and outmoded mix of common and statutory law and was designed to provide the courts, prosecutors and investigators the tools they needed to tackle bribery in the UK and overseas in the 21st century. This document deals with the origins of the Act, its provisions, implementation and enforcement and provides a preliminary assessment of its performance against the policy drivers that informed its content. This memorandum is published to assist in the post legislative review of this legislation by the House of Lords select committee for the review of the Bribery Act 2010.
