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 focuses on enforcement and cross-cutting issues tailored to specific country needs, and outstanding recommendations from Phase 3.
