The topic of FCPA compliance should be top-of-mind for U.S. auto industry companies who do business with third-party intermediaries and subsidiaries overseas, particularly in known "hot spots" such as China, India, Russia, Mexico, and Brazil. Enforcement activity by the U.S. Department of Justice shows no signs of slowing, and other countries have started to ramp up enforcement activity under their own anti-bribery legislation. As a result, companies may face scrutiny from U.S. and foreign government agencies.

  2. Maintaining control of the investigation, and
  3. Reining in "scope creep."
