Criminal law - Bribery - UK.

Under the UK Bribery Act 2010, an organisation will only be held criminally liable for the acts of an 'associated person' where that person actually represents or performs services for it and the bribery committed is intended to benefit that organisation.

Note this is a different definition from an 'associate' in relation to financial reporting, or an 'associated company' for tax purposes.
