Anti-corruption project “The space of integrity”

In 2018, the Anti-corruption Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with interested state bodies, initiated and launched the nationwide anti-corruption project “The space of integrity”.

The main goal of the project is to minimize corruption. To achieve it, work is being carried out to increase the openness, transparency, accountability of state bodies and the formation of a culture of integrity in society.

According to the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, anti-corruption transformation and integrity in the conduct of business should become an unshakable standard for all. This is also evidenced by the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan signed by the Head of State at the end of 2020 “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on anti-corruption”.   

According to this document, structural units performing the functions of anti-corruption compliance services should be identified in the quasi-public sector entities, the practice of which is widely developed in the corporate sector at the international level.

What is a compliance service?

The main mission of anti-corruption compliance services is to ensure that the organization and its employees comply with anti-corruption legislation.

Compliance services are independent units in organizations that have an official status, the right of access to all necessary information, the right to conduct internal investigations into potential violations with the involvement of the necessary experts in the field of compliance control.

Moreover, employees of anti-corruption compliance services should have direct access to a collegial body to express their opinions and transmit information regarding violations obtained in the process of controlling the risks themselves.

Thus, anti-corruption compliance services are practically the Agency's commissioners on the ground, who interact with all categories of regulatory and supervisory authorities, ensuring the successful implementation of a multi-level anti-corruption system.
