Looking for some hard-hitting insights on sanctions compliance? Look no further than Compliance into the Weeds! In this episode, Tom and Matt take a deep dive into the Foreign Extortion Prevention Act (FEPA), a groundbreaking law that aims to combat corruption by criminalizing foreign government officials who solicit or accept bribes from US entities.

This law complements the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which penalizes companies for offering bribes, and introduces new challenges and implications for anti-corruption measures. Tom views FEPA as a long-overdue measure that fills a gap in anti-corruption efforts. He agrees with Matt emphasizes that FEPA addresses a long-standing concern of anti-corruption advocates. Both Fox and Kelly anticipate further guidance from the Department of Justice on how this new law will interact with existing measures under the FCPA.
