It is the policy of Raytheon Company to ensure compliance by its leaders, employees, and covered persons, including representatives, consultants and other contracted third parties, with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act, and all other relevant anti-corruption laws.
The company competes based on price, the quality of our products and services, and the skills of our employees and subcontractors, not on the basis of any improper advantage outside the rules establishing fair competition.
Raytheon has a rigorous anti-corruption self-assessment and sustainment process, where we continually review and assess our anti-corruption policies, training, internal controls and practices. Read more about our cycle of continuous improvement.
Raytheon helped draft and was one of the original signatories of the Global Principles of Business Ethics for the Aerospace and Defense Industry. Our support for the Global Principles reinforces our commitment to anti-corruption compliance wherever we do business. Read the Global Principles.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Awareness Videos
A series of three video modules that raise awareness about key aspects of the FCPA:
FCPA compliance requires that we conduct disciplined due diligence concerning potential business partners, consultants and representatives in the international arena. Due diligence helps us ensure that all business conducted on behalf of the company is undertaken with integrity and that company funds are never used for improper payments.
The FCPA prohibits the giving of anything of value to non-U.S. government officials to gain an unfair advantage in business dealings.
The FCPA requires us to maintain accurate records. These records must include a description of the actual work performed. A violation of this requirement can result in serious legal consequences and potential damage to our reputation.
