Section 17A MACC Act 2009: A New Horizon in Malaysian Corporate Accountability

sec2217

The date of 1 June 2020 marked a watershed moment for Corporate Malaysia. Section 17A of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 introduced the concept of corporate liability, by which commercial organisations (and their directors, managers and other specified persons) are included as a party connected to that organisation.

Essentially, companies and partnerships have been given an opportunity to put in place a robust and effective anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) framework, or to enhance an existing one, and to institutionalise associated policies and procedures. However, despite the publicity generated by the introduction of Section 17A, many directors and managers still have lingering questions as to what needs to be done.

In this webinar, our distinguished panel of speakers from KPMG and Zico Law will explore the process and legal aspects of what companies can have in place as a form of defence in event the long arm of law, under Section 17A, comes calling.

This webinar is complimentary, with limited slots available. Kindly peruse the details below, and register online using the links provided.
