Pursuant to subsection (5) of Section 17A under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in Malaysia  issued the  guidelines on “Adequate Procedures” on 4th December 2018, as stated in the MACC Amendment Act 2018. The objective of these guidelines is to assist commercial organisations in understanding  the adequate procedures that should be implemented to prevent the occurrence of corrupt practices in relation to their business activities. These guidelines have been formed on the basis of five principles which may be used as reference points for any anti-corruption policies, procedures and controls the organisation may choose to implement towards the goal of having adequate procedures as required under the statutory provision. The law will be enforced on 1st June 2020 and commercial organisations need to buck up and prepare to face these new challenges as those who commit offences under this new law will have to face the brunt of the law.

Under this new act, the sentence upon conviction is a fine of not less than 10 times the sum or value of the gratification which is the subject matter of the offence, or 1 million ringgit, whichever is the higher.

In view of all this, it is necessary for commercial organisations to equip themselves with knowledge of the New Section 17A of the MACC Amendment Act 2018 and take preventive ant-corruption measures so as to not contravene this law.
