ICC Rules of Conduct and Recommendations to Combat Extortion and Bribery

ICC Rules of Conduct and Recommendations to Combat Extortion and Bribery (2005 Edition)

The ICC Commission on Anti-Corruption has published “Fighting Corruption, A Corporate Practices Manual”, which provides detailed practical guidance for compliance with the ICC Rules of Conduct and the OECD Convention.

ICC’s “Fighting Corruption, A Corporate Practices Manual” is a handbook for all who wish to put into place an efficient and well-run integrity programme. The manual was first published in 1999 and substantially revised and expanded in 2003.

Because of the accelerating pace of anti-corruption developments, as well as ICC’s work on corporate responsibility and corporate governance, the ICC Commission on Anti-Corruption decided to revisit and rethink the ICC Rules of Conduct and to refine its stance on a number of integrity matters.

Work on anti-corruption is never finished. Sustained efforts will still be necessary in the future. A better awareness is needed among public officials, in board rooms and at the working level. ICC is committed to contribute to this awareness.
