Pieth, Mark
Making the OECD Initiative Work


This paper describes the working of "soft law" as it has been developed in the OECD context. Since the aim is to implement a common standard, mutual trust depends on the ability of countries to discuss their individual approaches in a peer group setting and to give each other a frank feedback. This paper gives some insight into the mechanisms of evaluation of implementing legislations. Sceptics of course would not be satisfied by mere harmonisation of law. Establishing a "level playing field of commerce" implies comparable practice by official agencies and compliance by the private sector. OECD's projects to monitor practice will be outlined in detail. Finally, this paper touches upon the future work programme of the OECD Working Group in combating bribery.
