New Zealand has a strong reputation for being free from, and intolerant of, bribery and corruption.

In November 2015, the Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Legislation Bill was passed. This introduced a range of measures targeting illicit activities such as money laundering, bribery and drug-related crime.

On 1 December 2015, New Zealand ratified the United Nations Convention against Corruption. New Zealand's ability to combat corruption is now stronger than ever.

To assist New Zealand businesses in complying with our laws, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has produced the following set of guidance materials:

Saying no to bribery and corruption - a guide for New Zealand businesses (MoJ)

Facilitation payments and New Zealand's anti-bribery laws (MoJ)

Create a fraud and corruption policy (MoJ)

Example of a fraud and corruption policy (MoJ)
