Our industry: a clean and equal business

While the law changes on a daily basis, its evolution generally goes unnoticed by the majority of the public. It is therefore not often that changes to the law have a radical and far-reaching impact as those arising from the new Bribery Act 2010 and Equality Act 2010. These two Acts impact all UK businesses and the oil and gas industry should take note of both important new laws.
