Transparency International confirms the disaccreditation of its chapter in the US

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International, the world’s leading anti-corruption movement, confirmed that its International Board of Directors decided on 10 January 2017 to disaccredit Transparency International-USA as the National Chapter in the United States. 

This action took place in accordance with Transparency International's Accreditation Policy and included an initial Board decision on 27 November 2016, and a subsequent recommendation by a reconsideration panel on 2 January 2017, as provided in this policy.  All accredited Chapters of Transparency International undergo an accreditation review every three years to ensure consistency with Transparency International’s mission, values and principles and to confirm mutual interest in continuing working together.

As stated by the former chapter, the basis for the disaccreditation was the Board’s recognition of differences in philosophies, strategies, and priorities between the former chapter and the Transparency International Movement.

Transparency International further confirmed that it remains fully committed to supporting the fight against corruption in the United States, alongside US civil society organisations, individuals, including its Individual Members in the United States, companies, and government agencies, based on Transparency International’s 2020 Strategy and its mission, values and principles.
