Bribery Act 2011
The Bribery Act came into force on 1 July 2011. The Optical Confederation guidance (below) clarifies that the law is intended only to prevent acts of bribery. It does not prohibit normal business practices when these are appropriate and reasonable. When providing corporate hospitality for example, members are advised that proportionality is key.
