UK: OECD report on the implementation of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention

The OECD has published a report concerning the UK's implementation of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention: see here (pdf). A summary of the report, produced by the OECD Working Group on Bribery, is available here. Whilst noting the strong progress that the UK has made, the report nevertheless highlights areas of concern including: the questions that remain regarding the role of the Serious Fraud Office in foreign bribery cases; and extent to which the UK is doing enough, working with the Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, to detect foreign bribery.
