Excerpt
Executive Summary: This fifth annual report under the International Anti- Bribery and Fair Competition Act of 1998 (IAFCA) examines the progress that signatory countries have made in implementing and enforcing the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (Antibribery Convention). All 35 signatories have enacted legislation to implement the convention, and two-thirds of these signatories have had these laws for more than three years. We understand that several countries have investigations under way and that one or two countries have prosecutions planned. However, except for the U.S. government, no other party has prosecuted a case of bribery of a foreign public official under its implementing legislation and obtained a conviction. Since July 1, 2002, the U.S. government has instituted several enforcement actions, 14 in the prior year.
