This presentation by MACC, will highlight the MACC ACT of 2009, Section 17A related to Corporate Liability, Legal Framework, Corruption Risk Management & Organisational Anti-Corruption Plan.

Corruption, bribery, cronyism, corrupt practice, improper dealing, abuse of power etc are common language reported in the news media in the last few years. Efforts in curbing corruption and abuse of power in the public sector is being intensified by the government by improving governance, cultivating integrity with a view to eradicate corruption.

How can you manage your organisation's corruption risk exposure and identify key anti-corruption controls to help mitigate the risks.?

The speaker will share a special program EXCEL developed by MACA to assist organisation to address this important topic on curbing corruption.

EXCEL program is powered by Malaysia Anti-Corruption Academy (MACA) to assist organisation to develop Organisation Anti-Corruption Plan (OACP) to reduce the impact of corruption from act of corruption. The provision under Section 17A of the MACC Act 2009 prescribes the principle of corporate liability whereby a commercial organisation is guilty of an offense if any of its employees and/or associates commit corruption for the benefit of the organisation. Any commercial organisation, together with its “director, controller, officer or partner”; or persons who are “concerned in the management of its affairs”, may be prosecuted if its employees and/or any persons associated with the organisation carry out corrupt practices for the benefit or advantage of the organisation. The need for organisation to establish adequate procedure through Organisation Anti-Corruption Plan (OACP) is crucial to protect the organisation against corruption risk. If a commercial organisation is convicted of an offense, the punishment under Section 17A (2) is a fine of not less than 10 times the value of the bribe or RM1 million, whichever is higher, or imprisonment for up to 20 years, or both.

In this session, consultant/business owner/engineers will get the insight of why is Section 17A so crucial for every organisation. EXCEL program prepares the organisation with Legal Framework, Corporate Liability, Corruption Risk Management and OACP to comply with Section 17A MACC Act 2009.
