Data - Exporting Corruption 2020

The Netherlands

Limited Enforcement level
16 Investigations opened

There is limited enforcement against foreign bribery in the Netherlands. The country makes up 3.1 per cent of global exports and opened 16 investigations and 2 cases of foreign bribery between 2016 and 2019.

Only three cases were concluded with sanctions during this period. There is insufficient transparency in enforcement data and beneficial ownership information in the Netherlands.

There is currently no central register of beneficial ownership of companies, which hinders the country’s foreign anti-bribery efforts.
