AFA hosts EPAC/EACN meeting on interagency cooperation

 On 7 October 2019 in Paris, the French Anti-Corruption Agency (AFA) hosted the first meeting of EPAC/EACN EU Integrity sub-working group 2 on “Interagency cooperation and common standards for its improvement”.

This meeting brought together representatives of the Prevention and Fight against Corruption Office of the Balearic Islands, the Agency for the Prevention and Fight against Fraud and Corruption of Valencia, the Special Investigation Service of Lithuania, the Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) of Austria, and the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN) and AFA of France.

After briefly introducing their respective organizations, participants reviewed their current interagency cooperation initiatives and assessed unmet cooperation needs. In particular, they highlighted the need for enhancing operational information exchange between agencies of different jurisdictions. Then, participants focused on the challenges they face in implementing international cooperation projects, such as the lack of dedicated resources. Finally, members of sub-working group 2 discussed possible solutions and common standards for improving peer-to-peer cooperation. Practical recommendations were formulated and will be shared at the 19th EPAC/EACN General Assembly in Stockholm this December.
