Compliance violations by and within businesses have now assumed international proportions within the framework of their international operations.

At the same time, the responsibility of both local and corporate management to prevent compliance violations has increased all over the world. Within this context, this book provides an international review of effective compliance regulations.

Legal systems aimed at sanctioning compliance violations by businesses and their managers are rapidly being developed all over the world. Behind this development are not only organisations like the WHO, UN, OECD or Transparency International, but also businesses themselves.

Lawmakers in the applicable economic areas moreover are increasingly regulating the legal frameworks of business operations in areas such as corruption, antitrust law, data protection, money laundering, foreign trade law or customs in a stricter way, with more severe legal consequences, and imposing more barriers on international operations.

With respect to 30 jurisdictions, international experts answer important questions such as: What are the liabilities of a business, manager or shareholder in a given country and how can they defend themselves? What are the major areas of law and threats they should take account of and how are they enforced? In addition, our experts provide useful tips for foreign shareholders and compliance or legal departments regarding the issues they should pay special attention to.


  • first book on the market, that provides an an overview over the compliance rules in 30 countries
  • useful tips for compliance and legal departments to prevent compliance violations
  • written by experts of international law firms with focus on compliance matters
