FRENCH ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES PUBLISH FIRST-EVER GUIDANCE ON INTERNAL ANTI-BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION INVESTIGATIONS

On 17 June, Ropes & Gray reported that the French Anti-Corruption Agency (Agence Française Anticorruption, or AFA) and the National Financial Prosecutor’s Office (Parquet National Financier, or PNF) jointly published a draft of their first-ever guidance on how businesses should conduct internal investigations related to bribery and corruption.  It says that the Guide is particularly notable given France’s June 2017 enactment of sweeping anti-corruption legislation known as Sapin II.  It says that together with other guidance on internal investigations and deferred prosecution agreements, the new guide serves as a critical reference for businesses operating in the world’s seventh-largest economy.
