Abstract

The Korean legal system derives primarily from continental civil law with some elements of Anglo-American law. Korea ratified the UNCAC and the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention in February 2008 and January 1999 respectively. Korea joined the APG in 1998 and the FATF in 2009. Korea’s domestic bribery offences have not been externally reviewed. However, its foreign bribery offence and related enforcement issues have been examined extensively under the OECD Convention’s monitoring mechanism. To avoid duplication, this report will draw heavily on the OECD’s monitoring reports. It will also refer to FATF/APG evaluation reports where appropriate.
