Data - Exporting Corruption 2020


Moderate Enforcement level
23 Investigations opened

Italy moderately enforces against foreign bribery and accounts for 2.6 per cent of global exports. Between 2016 and 2019, the country opened 23 investigations and 9 cases, and concluded four with sanctions.

Italy is one of four countries that declined in enforcement since our last report. Italy is in the process of establishing a central register for beneficial ownership information, however, it will require a subscription, which is a drawback.

In addition, the lack of a centralised database about foreign bribery cases in Italy is a major issue that hinders enforcement.
