Bribery in international business

TRACE Anti-Bribery Survey


TRACE, Inc., a non-profit membership association that pools resources to provide practical and cost-effective anti-bribery compliance solutions for multinational companies and their commercial intermediaries, is conducting a benchmarking survey to ascertain:

  • the prevalence of bribe demands made by foreign public officials
  • whether laws and treaties proscribing transnational public bribery are perceived to have an impact on the incidence of such bribe demands
  • whether greater guidance on complying with these laws is desired or necessary

This survey aims to advance the dialogue about foreign bribery and efforts to comply with the various treaties and laws proscribing it. Individual survey participants will not be identified. Results will be categorised by industry or other general characteristics of survey respondents, such as company size. A summary of the survey results will be posted on the TRACE website.
