Federal Sentencing Guidelines and Sarbanes-Oxley Act

2011 - 09 - 16

The Federal Sentencing Guidelines are U.S regulations related to internal controls. Sarbanes-Oxley Act is another commonly heard law.
在美國與內部控制比較相關的法規一個是於1991年生效的聯邦裁法綱領(Federal Sentencing Guidelines)1,另一個則是大家可能比較常聽到的,於2002年所制定之沙賓法案(Sarbanes-Oxley Act)。前者是提供法官一個科刑的客觀標準,同時提供企業遵循法令之誘因;後者則是提出許多與公司治理方面相關的改革制度,其中當然有與內部控制制度息息相關之制度,以下將簡單介紹此兩種法規。

參考資料:
1. 聯邦裁罰綱領(Federal Sentencing Guidelines)是由美國裁罰委員會於1987年5月提出之法案,並於同年11月經過國會同意後成為正式之法律。其目的是希望能夠提供法官一個科刑之客觀標準,根據個人犯罪行為之嚴重性及犯罪歷史而決定其裁罰範圍,才不會發生兩個人違反同樣的法律,由不同的法官來審理,一個法官給予行為人緩刑,另一個法官卻科最高刑度之情形。其後於1991年5月,裁罰委員會另外提出針對組織犯罪行為之裁罰綱領(Organizational Guidelines),經國會同意後成為聯邦裁罰綱領的第8章。本書所討論之範圍即是第8章關於組織犯罪之部分。
