OECD Foreign Bribery Report

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released its Foreign Bribery Report (Report) this week.  The Report is the OECD’s first ever analysis of foreign bribery on a global scale.  It analyses 427 legal cases involving companies (164 cases) and individuals (263 cases) who allegedly bribed foreign public officials in one or more of the 41 signatory countries to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention (Convention).  The Report reflects data obtained from law enforcement authorities in 17 countries where foreign bribery cases were concluded between February 2009, when the Convention came into force, and June 2014.  The Report highlights trends identified by the OECD relating to the investigation and enforcement of foreign bribery offences. It does not discuss specific companies or cases.   To read more about the report’s key findings, please click here.
