"Failure to Prevent" laws and "obligation to prevent" regulations are spreading. What are they and how do they work?


Event Info.

Lunchtime Lecture (in the UK): One hour.

"Failure to Prevent" laws are not new and nor is the concept behind them. As more countries develop them, and give them extraterritorial effect, and as some countries apply a different approach but with a similar effect, it's essential for long term planning of policies and procedures that laws of this type are included now, not only projected for later.

Nigel Morris-Cotterill talks about the development and spread of "Failure to Prevent" style laws, their targets and effects. He also talks about "obligation to prevent" policies developed by regulators and why these are different to "Failure to prevent." He also explains why it is prudent - and cost effective - to design and implement a comprehensive regime now rather than to introduce one piecemeal.
