REPORT FROM THE COMMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL assessing the extent to which the Member States have taken the necessary measures in order to comply with Council Framework Decision 2003/568/JHA of 22 July 2003 on combating corruption in the private sector
1. The document is a report prepared by the European Commission on Member States’ implementation of Council Framework Decision 2003/568/JHA of 22 July 2003, as provided for in Article 9 of that Framework Decision. The Framework Decision 2003/568/JHA sets minimum standards to combat active and passive corruption in the private sector and ensures that these offences incur effective, proportionate and dissuasive penalties. Although initially bound by the Framework Decision, the United Kingdom (UK) opted out on 1 September 2014 and is therefore not subject to the provisions or assessed in the report.
