Colombia

Limited Enforcement level
20 Investigations opened

Colombia demonstrates limited enforcement against companies bribing abroad. While Colombia accounts for 0.2 per cent of global exports, it opened 20 investigations and no cases between 2016 and 2019, but only concluded one case during that time.

Colombia is one of six countries that improved in enforcement since our last report.

While Colombia has administrative liability for corporations, there is no provision for corporate criminal liability, which would offer better avenues for effective and dissuasive sanctions.

In addition, an absence of legislation to protect whistleblowers in public and private sectors jeopardizes enforcement efforts.
