E-007187/2015(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-007187/2015

In recent years, the Commission introduced a number of legislative initiatives at EU level which are relevant for the fight against corruption, some of which have been already adopted. Examples include the Commission's proposal to establish a European Public Prosecutor's Office(1), the directive on the freezing and confiscation of instrumentalities and proceeds of crime(2), the Fourth Money Laundering Directive(3), the Public Procurement Directives(4) and the directive on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large undertakings and groups(5).

As the First EU Anti-Corruption Report highlighted, while new anti-corruption legislation should be adopted wherever gaps are identified , the main focus in the fight against corruption in Europe needs to be at the level of implementing existing anti-corruption rules and assessing current challenges in accordance with the European Agenda on Security.
