Alliance for Integrity's conference on “Digitalisation of Compliance Management: The Way Forward”

With the ongoing technological developments across the globe, digital tools and solutions are expanding their role in the field of preventing corruption and promoting integrity.

Following the global trend, the legal framework in India has also undergone significant changes. The latest amendment to the Prevention of Corruption Act in 2018 makes it an offence for the commercial organisations to be involved in corrupt practices for gaining undue advantage to their business. The law promotes establishing adequate procedures in compliance of the guidelines to be issued, which also acts as a defence in situations where any of their employees is involved in corrupt activities. The clarifications on the guidelines are still underway.

In order to support companies putting the latest amendment into practice, the Alliance for Integrity is launching TheIntegrityApp in India. TheIntegrityApp is a digital application developed by the Alliance for Integrity and leading compliance experts from around the globe. It is a self-assessment tool especially designed for smaller and medium-sized enterprises to evaluate their compliance measures. The app has inbuilt capacity-building resources to support the user in improving the company’s compliance management system.

To explore further the potential of digitalisation for the field of anti-corruption, the Alliance for Integrity will organise a High-level Panel on the “Role of Digitalisation in the Implementation of the New Amendment to the Corruption Law in India.”

The conference will be held as part of the “Vigilance Awareness Week” observed by the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC).
