This report provides an analytical framework for studying integrity in trade, combining insights from OECD work on trade facilitation, responsible business conduct and integrity in customs. It provides data and evidence supporting the view that trade facilitation and integrity are mutually supportive objectives, and suggests measures to effectively tackle corrupt practices affecting global supply chains.


Towards integrity strategies for clean trade

The aim is thus to find the right balance between easing red tape while having appropriate controls, taking into account the local context and its inherent risk areas. The main elements of a strategy to promote integrity in trade must respond to identified integrity risks and target the most harmful illicit rents arising from the global supply chain as well as from illicit trade.
