Data - Exporting Corruption 2020


Little or none Enforcement level
3 Investigations opened

Poland demonstrates little to no enforcement against foreign bribery. Although Poland makes up 1.3 per cent of global exports, it only opened three investigations and opened and closed no cases between 2016 and 2019.

In October 2019, the country introduced a law to establish a central register of beneficial owners of companies, however, no such central register is available for trusts.

Poland has several legal inadequacies that hamper its anti-bribery efforts, including no criminal liability for companies that engage in foreign bribery. In addition, several reforms introduced over the last 5 years have compromised the independence of its judiciary, potentially making enforcement difficult.
