ICC Rules on Combating Corruption

The Rules assist enterprises to comply with their legal obligations and with the numerous anti-corruption initiatives at the international level.

 

First published in 1977 and just significantly revised in 2011, these flagship ICC Rules outline the basic measures companies should take to prevent corruption. These ICC Rules are intended as a method of self-regulation by international business and constitute what is considered good commercial practice in fighting corruption.

The ICC Rules on Combating Corruption respond directly to the G20’s call and to UNCAC’s requirement that business step up its efforts to fight against corruption.

The 2011 edition of the ICC Rules for Combating Corruption consists of three parts:

  • Part I states the Rules proper;
  • Part II deals with policies which Enterprises should enact to support compliance with the Rules;
  • Part III lists the suggested elements of an effective corporate compliance programme
