Since the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention entered into force over 20 years ago, Portugal has not had a single foreign bribery conviction. Notwithstanding recent reforms, Portugal has not addressed longstanding Working Group concerns regarding its legal framework, and sanctions for foreign bribery against natural and legal persons do not appear to be effective, proportionate or dissuasive.
The Working Group is responsible for monitoring the implementation and enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, the 2009 Anti-Bribery Recommendation and related instruments.
