Amendment 3 of Thailand’s Anti-Corruption Act, the Organic Act on Counter Corruption B.E. 2542 (1999) (the Act), came into effect on July 10, 2015. The amendment was influenced by the U.K. Anti-Bribery Act and by the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and its enforcement agencies. Under the Act, Thailand now complies with international standards for anti-corruption. The amended Act covers offenses and punishments relating to bribery amongst state officials in Thailand, foreign countries, and officials from international organizations. The National Anti-Corruption Commission can now investigate and file suits in Thailand and in foreign courts against Thai and foreign state officials, individuals in the private sector, and international organizations. A major objective of the amended Act is to compel Thai companies to draft and implement anti- corruption policies that will help prevent corrupt practices before they can happen.
