The Transparency International Assurance Framework

Good practice now demands that enterprises develop comprehensive programmes to counter bribery that are monitored and improved on a continual basis. Moreover, enterprises are increasingly expected to communicate to their stakeholders, internally and externally, the measures and efforts they are deploying to counter and detect bribery. The Assurance Framework aims to encourage the use of independent assurance as a means to strengthen corporate anti-bribery programmes and lend greater credibility to the efforts of enterprises to prevent bribery and corruption. The Assurance Framework was developed with enterprises in mind but should also be of help to assurance practitioners by providing criteria that may eventually become generally accepted for use in anti-bribery assurance engagements.

The Assurance Framework is the latest addition to a range of Transparency International tools based on the Business Principles for Countering Bribery and developed to raise the level of corporate anti-bribery practice.

The Framework was developed by Transparency International with the support of the World Economic Forum Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI). The Framework underwent a four-month public consultation and incorporates feedback from this consultation.

Transparency International is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 90 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, Transparency International raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.
