Following a recommendation from the OECD Working Group on Bribery, the US agencies charged with enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act have issued guidance to companies and individuals on the interpretation of the Act, and their approach to enforcement.  This briefing examines the most relevant parts of the guidance, including that relating to:

• gifts and hospitality
• charitable donations, and
• 'facilitating payments'
