Publication date

The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) is the first binding global instrument that deals with corruption. States that are parties to UNCAC are required to undergo a review of their implementation of key chapters of the convention every five years.

In 2012 Australia's implementation of Chapters III (Criminalisation & Law Enforcement) and IV (International Cooperation) of the UNCAC was reviewed and found to be fully compliant. The report on Australia's implementation of Chapters III and IV of the UNCAC has been finalised, and the executive summary of this report is publicly available.
