Global Enforcement Reports (GER)

Published annually, the Global Enforcement Report (GER) features graphic and textual analyses of all known enforcement events—including investigations and enforcement actions—since the first bribery cases were prosecuted in the United States following the enactment of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Despite the global denunciation of bribery, little information is publicly available on enforcement of anti-bribery regulations. This can make it difficult to recognize trends concerning the extent to which countries are enforcing anti-bribery laws or where bribery is most prevalent, even though such information is critical to promoting transparency in global business. TRACE publishes the GER in an attempt to provide this essential information.
