Special Award: The Antitrust Compliance Network

The Antitrust Compliance Network started as a simple email network among those around the world who believed in the importance of antitrust/competition law compliance programs, and in the government’s role in promoting such programs by effective policy measures. The group did not believe that mere words made compliance programs effective, and did not believe that mere words on the government’s part would promote such programs. They pushed for the governments to use their leverage to get companies to enhance their compliance efforts, and this meant that governments needed to distinguish companies that did not care and did not try, from those that acted in good faith and had diligent competition law compliance programs.

I have a friend who refuses to be recognized for all that she does. She says “we are all just penciled in.” I appreciate her philosophy, but I have a different belief. If someone has thought about you enough to recognize you, then let them express what they believe. Let them thank you, or congratulate you. There’s enough sad and difficult moments in life, why not have others share in something good? So to the good people at Compliance Week, thank you for this.

Joe has posted a detailed draft analysis of ISO 37001 on the Social Science Research Network. Is this the new standard for anti-corruption compliance programs, or still a work in progress? Will it help improve compliance programs, or cause companies to make mistakes, or maybe do both? What do you think of this standard? Should companies be applying this today?


ISO 37001 on anti-corruption compliance management systems has been unusually controversial. Joe proposes starting a discussion on the FCPA blog on how to fix ISO 37001 and the certification process:
