IACCC background

The IACCC was established in July 2017 and aims to provide coordinated support for law enforcement agencies investigating Grand Corruption offences such as bribery of public officials, embezzlement, abuse of function and laundering of the proceeds of crime. The IACCC brings together a range of law enforcement partners to assist investigating agencies by collating and disseminating real time intelligence, with a focus on the identification of assets, accounts and money flows suspected to be connected to allegations of Grand Corruption.

The function of the IACCC is to:

  • Inform - which organisations and initiatives can offer assistance
  • Assist - with practical actions and advice
  • Collect - information to form a single picture of grand corruption
  • Coordinate - an effective global law enforcement response
  • Collaborate - by creating a constructive, cooperative and agreed approach

This is achieved through the following law enforcement agencies who are attached to the IACCC:

  • New Zealand Police and Serious Fraud Office
  • Australian Federal Police
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation and Homeland Security Investigations (US)
  • National Crime Agency and Serious Fraud Office (UK)
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police
  • Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (Singapore)
  • Interpol

The IACCC also seeks to provide broader investigational support as well as working with referring agencies to explore potential for training and capacity development (where it relates to an investigation referred to the IACCC) to assist agencies’ Grand Corruption investigation capability.

Non-IACCC participating agencies may refer cases of Grand Corruption to the IACCC for intelligence and operational support.
