Communication published by the European Commission on 14 December 2020, setting out its approach to review the European Union's implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).
The UNCAC aims to promote and strengthen measures to prevent and combat corruption more efficiently and effective; to promote, facilitate and support international cooperation and technical assistance in the prevention of and fight against corruption; to promote integrity, accountability and proper management of public affairs and public property. It is the only legally binding international anti-corruption treaty.
All EU Member States are Parties to the Convention, and the EU became a Party in 2008. As a Party to the UNCAC, the EU must assess how its rules and practices comply with the anti-corruption principles, objectives and requirements under the Convention to identify any deficiencies.
