DATA ON ENFORCEMENT OF THE ANTI-BRIBERY CONVENTION

On 23 December, the OCED provided information collected from the Parties to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. The enforcement data includes criminal, administrative and civil cases of foreign bribery that have resulted in a final disposition, such as a criminal conviction or acquittal, or similar findings under an administrative or civil procedure.  Published for the first time in 2010, the enforcement data is updated annually by the OECD Working Group on Bribery.  From the entry into force of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention on 15 February 1999 through 31 December 2019, the Parties to the Convention reported having:

  1. convicted or sanctioned at least 651 natural and 230 legal persons for foreign bribery through criminal proceedings;
  2. sanctioned at least 87 natural and 115 legal persons for foreign bribery through administrative or civil proceedings;
  3. convicted or sanctioned at least 81 natural and 103 legal persons for related offences (e.g. false accounting, money laundering, tax evasion) through criminal proceedings; and
  4. sanctioned at least 73 natural and 179 legal persons for related offences (e.g. false accounting, money laundering, tax evasion) through administrative or civil proceedings.
