The OECD Recommendation for Further Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions was adopted by the OECD Council on 26 November 2009. Annex II to the Recommendation, the Good Practice Guidance on Internal Controls, Ethics and Compliance was adopted on 18 February 2010.
The purpose of Phase 2 is to study the structures put in place to enforce the laws and rules implementing the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and to assess their application in practice.
Phase 1 evaluates whether the legal texts through which participants implement the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention meet the standard set by the Convention and initial actions to implement the 1997 Revised Convention Recommendation. The evaluation also provides an opportunity for countries to learn from the experiences and approaches of others.
