Submission to the OECD Phase 4 Review of Australia’s implementation of its commitment to the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions

Foreign Bribery

The Australian Government needs to address, without delay, the weaknesses in our laws and efforts to ensure Australia joins countries like the United Kingdom, United States and Canada as leaders in combatting bribery; and fully implement its commitments under the OECD Convention, including full implementation of all OECD Working Group recommendations.

TI Australia’s overall position with regard to Australia’s foreign bribery regime is to ensure:

  • Australia has laws and legal processes that enable it to implement fully its commitments under the OECD Convention, and
  • The Australian Government devotes sufficient resources to actively enforce those laws.
