The OECD Working Group on Bribery monitors compliance with the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and makes tailored recommendations to each of the 44 Parties to the Convention to improve anti-bribery laws and enforcement. In the event that a Party to the Convention has continuously failed to adequately implement the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, the Working Group can employ additional measures to address this, such as labelling any significant or longstanding unimplemented recommendation made to the evaluated country as a "high priority unimplemented recommendation" on the OECD website.
Text of Recommendations:
Recommendation 10(a)(i): “Amend the law in order to … expand the scope of the offence of foreign bribery, to include the "promising" and "offering" of a bribe as offences”;
Recommendation 10(a)(iii): “Amend the law in order to … eliminate the defence of "effective regret" as it applies to foreign bribery; and
Recommendation 10(a)(iv): “Amend the law in order to … exclude the application of the defence of economic extortion from the offence of foreign bribery”
