The Bribery Act 2010; Practical Guidance for the Shipping Industry


The UK chamber of shipping is pleased to announce the launch of "The Bribery Act 2010; Practical Guidance for the Shipping Industry”. The guidelines will be launched at an event for members and shipping industry professionals as part of London international shipping week, on Tuesday 8th September. 

UK Chamber CEO, Guy Platten commented;

"The chamber has been supportive of UK government efforts to reduce corruption, and fully supports the aims and principles of the Bribery Act. 

"However it also recognises the unique challenges faced by shipping firms and their staff as they conduct their business around the world.

The UK chamber guidance will help firms to better understand the implications of the Act and provide practical and operational context for ship owners, operators and masters."
