Fighting against dumping and bribery is required for any company. Suspicions of corruption can tarnish the reputation of your company.

What is corruption and bribery?

When people or institutions act unethically for personal gain or to benefit a small number of people, it is referred to as corruption. It entails the abuse of authority for improper goals, such as theft, fraud, favoritism, and bribery.

What is corruption and bribery?
In addition to eroding democratic institutions, obstructing economic growth, and escalating social inequality, corruption can occur in both the public and private sectors. Corruption can also have far-reaching detrimental impacts on a society.

Offering, providing, getting, or soliciting something of value (often money) in exchange for a favorable action or influence on behalf of the briber is known as bribery, which is a specific sort of corrupt behavior. In most jurisdictions, accepting a bribe is illegal, and it is commonly regarded as a serious type of corruption since it undermines the values of justice, transparency, and meritocracy in the decision-making process.

To counter this widespread phenomenon, the OECD signed in 1997 the Anti-Bribery and Corruption Convention which:

  • Establishes legally binding standards for making bribery of foreign public officials in international business transactions a criminal offense.

  • Provides several measures to effectively implement its provisions.

  • Is the first and only international anti-corruption instrument targeting the "offering" of bribes to foreign public officials./p>

  • Adopted by 36 OECD member countries and 8 non-OECD countries (Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, South Africa, and Russia).
