Austria

Limited Enforcement level
2 Investigations opened

Austria demonstrates limited enforcement against companies bribing abroad. Although Austria makes up 1 per cent of global exports, it only opened two known investigations and three cases of foreign bribery from 2016 until 2019. In addition, the country closed two cases with sanctions during the same period.

Austria’s whistleblowers are not well-protected and subject to strict conditions, which does not encourage them to cooperate, and makes investigations more difficult.
