Adherence to FCPA

We’re committed to conducting global business in a fair and transparent manner.

Fortune Brands operates in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) that prohibits bribes and other improper payments to obtain a business advantage. 

Our Anti-Corruption Compliance Policy states that all bribery – including “facilitation payments” - is prohibited. The policy provides guidance for avoiding questionable situations, and highlights the importance of keeping accurate records and appropriate transaction documentation. 

Our associates are encouraged to ask for help if they have any concerns related to the FCPA or any other compliance areas. They understand it’s their obligation to report any wrongdoing related to the FCPA. Good-faith reports of actual or suspected violations can be made to Fortune Brands’ legal department or our third-party compliance helpline. All reports of FCPA violation are investigated.
