Bribery in international business

Country monitoring of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention


Countries’ implementation and enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention is monitored by the OECD Working Group on Bribery through a rigorous peer-review monitoring system, which Transparency International calls the “gold standard” of monitoring.


Monitoring is subject to specific agreed upon Principles and takes place in several phases:

  • Phase 1 evaluates the adequacy of a country’s legislation to implement the Convention
  • Phase 2 assesses whether a country is applying this legislation effectively
  • Phase 3 focuses on enforcement of the Convention, the 2009 Anti-Bribery Recommendation, and outstanding recommendations from Phase 2
  • Phase 4 is under development and scheduled to start in 2016
