The Bribery Act 2010 defines the act of bribery as the giving or receiving of a financial or other advantage in an attempt to motivate an individual, who holds a position of trust, or carries out a function that would normally be expected to be carried out impartially, into improper performance.
The CPAA has a zero-tolerance approach to all bribery and corruption. As a professional association we require ourselves to operate in a legal, fair, ethical and professional way. Acts of bribery are not only punishable by fines and prison sentences, they would also greatly affect the CPAA’s existing and future business relations and partnerships and would inflict a great deal of damage upon the CPAA’s reputation.
As an international association the CPAA upholds all local laws and regulations in the countries in which we operate, however, regardless of geographical location we are still bound by the relevant laws of the UK, including the Bribery Act 2010.
