LONDON, February 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
International anti-corruption and compliance regulations are evolving. Enforcement agencies are becoming more powerful and their reaches are extending. Mining companies need to adapt to the new climate by creating compliance programmes and effective due-diligence standards which suit their business requirements and which apply to international regulations often in high-risk jurisdictions.
Regulators, mining companies and equipment providers are set to gather in London at Mining Journal's Global Anti-Corruption & Compliance in Mining event. The gathering is designed to provide cost-efficient solutions to these challenges by pooling the knowledge of the mining industry's compliance and legal experts and offering thought-provoking presentations and panel discussions.
Speaker line-up includes:
- David Green CB QC, Director, Serious Fraud Office, United Kingdom
- Sgt Pat Poitevin, Senior Investigator & Outreach coordinator RCMP National Division, Canada
- Pascale Dubois, Chief Suspension & Debarment Officer, World Bank, United States of America

- Jonathan Drimmer, Vice President & Deputy General Counsel, Barrick Gold Corporation, Canada
'Bribery and corruption issues are in the spotlight like never before and at the forefront of government, regulator and enforcement agencies' minds when looking at the extractives industry. Mining cannot afford to rest on its laurels when it comes to bribery and corruption issues and conferences which bring compliance and legal professionals together such as this are an ever more important way of learning about industry trends, sharing war stories and, most importantly, success stories in the fight against bribery and corruption. I am looking forward to sharing my views and experiences with the delegates and also hearing from the delegates themselves about their problems, experiences and possible solutions to the problems we all face in the mining industry -problems that are all too familiar to every one of us regardless of where our operations are.' - James Kindon, Group Head of Compliance, ENRC, United Kingdom
