The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), enacted in 1977, generally prohibits the payment of bribes to foreign officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. The FCPA can apply to prohibited conduct anywhere in the world and extends to publicly traded companies and their officers, directors, employees, stockholders, and agents. Agents can include third party agents, consultants, distributors, joint-venture partners, and others. The FCPA also requires issuers to maintain accurate books and records and have a system of internal controls sufficient to, among other things, provide reasonable assurances that transactions are executed and assets are accessed and accounted for in accordance with management’s authorization.

A Certificate of Origin is a document which states the country where the goods were actually manufactured. In certain cases, all the goods may not originate from one country. The raw materials and the processes may be from another country. In such cases, if more than 50 percent of the goods originate from one country, that country is determined to be the country of origin. A certificate of origin is used in international trade.
