Bermuda’s Bribery Act 2016 – What Your Organisation Should Be Doing to Comply

The Bermuda Government’s new Bribery Act 2016 came into force on 1 September, 2017 (Bribery Act), drastically modernising Bermuda’s anti-bribery legislation. The Bribery Act is largely modelled on the UK’s Bribery Act 2010, but it is important that persons and organisations in Bermuda understand the provisions of the Bermuda Bribery Act which has wide implications and introduces a number of new offences into Bermuda law.

Multi-national enterprises based in or connected to Bermuda should analyse their risk and ensure that they implement procedures that sufficiently take into account Bermuda anti-bribery provisions. To assist, the Bermuda Government has issued Guidance on how commercial organisations can ensure that they comply with the Bribery Act entitled ‘The Bribery Act 2016 Guidance about procedures which relevant commercial organisations can put into place to prevent persons associated with them from bribing (section 11 of the Bribery Act 2016)’ (Guidance).
