Beyond enforcement, creating incentives for compliance
The OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transactions has opened a public consultation on Phase 4 country evaluations for the implemenation of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention which will take place on Tuesday, December 9th.

Established in 1994, the OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transactions (Working Group) is responsible for monitoring the implementation and enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, the 2009 Recommendation on Further Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (2009 Anti-Bribery Recommendation) and related instruments. This peer-review monitoring system is conducted in three phases and is considered by Transparency International to be the ‘gold standard’ of monitoring.
The meeting will include representatives from the State Parties to the Convention as well as professionals working in the field of anti-corruption compliance.
