Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions

At the request of the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Belgian Canadian Business Chamber is making available these documents on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, which Belgium has adhered to since 1999.

This Convention establishes legally binding standards to criminalise bribery of foreign public officials in international business transactions and provides for a host of related measures that make this effective. It is the first and only international anti-corruption instrument focused on the ‘supply side’ of the bribery transaction. Please click on the following links for more details on this Convention.
