  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 10, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Glenn Pomerantz, CPA, CFE, Partner, Global Forensics Practice, BDO Consulting will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled "FCPA/Anti-Corruption Compliance in Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical Industry: A 2017 Update"

    Event Summary:
    True to its promise, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is returning focus on the pharma industry after a break for a number of years. Recently, following several other SEC resolutions in the life sciences sector, the SEC has announced its settlement with AstraZeneca PLC. The company's Chinese and Russian subsidiaries were alleged to have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act's (FCPA) internal controls and recordkeeping requirements, resulting in AstraZeneca's payment of $4,325,000 in profit disgorgement, $822,000 in prejudgment interest and $375,000 for civil penalty.

    With this renewed focus on the industry and the increased international cooperation, pharmaceutical companies should ensure that a strong anti-corruption compliance program is in place.

    In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant FCPA updates and developments in 2016 for the pharmaceutical industry and will provide a comprehensive outlook for the year ahead. Speakers will also provide expert insights on the best practices for FCPA compliance.

    Key topics include:
    FCPA/Anti-Corruption in Pharmaceutical Industry: Current Trends
    Notable Cases
    Common Anti-Corruption Risks
    Best Compliance Practices
