This publication is designed to help shipping companies comply with the regulations outlined in the UK Government’s Bribery Act, 2010. It suggests corporate procedures for preventing bribery and outlines policies, tactics and training for ships’ Masters.

The book’s primary concern is with bribery prevention. However, it also explains the role of collective action initiatives involving other shipowners, national governments and local authorities. It outlines risk assessments and the associated crew support required when demands for facilitation payments are resisted. A Master’s flowchart is included to illustrate suggested responses and it forms an important training tool for ships’ Masters.

World economic growth and the prosperity of the shipping industry are closely linked. The UK shipping industry competes with others in providing transport and services on a global scale. As a place to locate ship operations and provide services to ships as mobile assets, the UK upholds a good reputation for effective governance and honesty. And thanks to the Bribery Act 2010, the UK has one of the strictest anti-corruption regimes in the world.

Upholding high standards is key when faced with challenging incidents in other parts of the world. Demands for facilitation payments remain endemic in places where corruption continues to be rife. This presents difficulties for operators committed to maintaining high standards.

The UK Chamber of Shipping has produced this guidance in the hope that the suggestions to resist and manage such incidents are recognised as a practical means of furthering the ultimate goal of eliminating such demands in the first place.
