Fighting corruption in the public sector

Public consultation on the OECD draft Recommendation on Public Integrity


Public Consultation (closed)

The OECD is developing a comprehensive integrity strategy to enhance prosperity and well-being through effective implementation of an integrity system.

Integrity is the backbone of political, economic and social structures and there is a growing awareness that corruption and other integrity breaches are still occurring or evolving. This has resulted in increased interest across countries in implementing a progressive integrity strategy.

As a result, the OECD Council invited the Public Governance Committee to update the 1998 OECD Recommendation on Improving Ethical Conduct in the Public Service.

The draft Recommendation on Public Integrity updates the 1998 Recommendation and provides a comprehensive perspective in designing a coherent and focused integrity and anti-corruption strategy for the public sector and society as a whole.

The OECD invited any interested individuals or organisations to submit their comments on the draft Recommendation on Public Integrity between 22 February 2016 and 22 March 2016. This draft is still a work in progress and the content may be subject to modifications, including relevant comments received through the public consultation process.
