The days of pure FCPA and sanctions due diligence are over. Every due diligence report on a third party is going to be different based on who your third party is and what they do. Even the same report on the same company ordered by separate clients will be different because the work the third party is doing for that particular company creates a unique set of risks. Reports are uniquely relevant to your business and describe exactly what you need to know – nothing more, nothing less.
