Introduction (15 min) with Knut Høivik regarding the responses to the White Paper
Panel - What significance should anti-corruption compliance programs have in assessing whether a company should be sanctioned? In Knut Høiviks report on proposals for changes in the provisions on corporate liability and anti-corruption, preventive compliance rules and procedures have been given an advanced position (ground for impunity). Legal incentives for good corporate governance and compliance are positive, but what concerns does such a regulation raise? In addition, should a regulation be effective to prevent corruption for Norwegian companies, as we have seen under French law (SAPIM II), for example? In that case, what kind of supervisory system should be established, and what should be the consequences of not implementing specific anti-corruption compliance programs?
