The new laws on bribery in the private sector

10 April 2017

The Law ("Law") of 15 March 2017 no. 38 on the "Implementation of the framework decision 2003/568/JHA of the Council of 22 July 2003 relating to the fight against bribery in the private sector" has been published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale no. 75 of 30 March 2017. The Law makes significant changes to the law regarding bribery in the private sector for the purpose of bringing Italy into line with European standards.

The Law will enter into force on 14 April 2017. The new provisions will significantly impact also on Law no. 231 of 2001, therefore, since its entry into force, it will be necessary to conduct a new assessment of the Systems and Controls Model.
