From time to time, companies may discover that they've violated export, economic sanctions, anti-corruption, or customs laws and must decide whether to self-disclose to the U.S. government agency that enforces the regulation in question. When considering a voluntary disclosure, companies must weigh all facts and circumstances leading to the potential violation, as well as the advantages and disadvantages associated with disclosure.
This Voluntary Self-Disclosure Handbook was created to provide a concise summary of the voluntary disclosure procedures administered by various U.S. government agencies.
The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought about your specific circumstances.
