Transparency International, the global anti-corruption organisation, has published its annual report on enforcement of the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, entitled Exporting Corruption? Country Enforcement of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, Progress Report 2012. The report looks at the member countries of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, which requires each signatory to make foreign bribery a crime, and grades them according to the number of investigations into, and prosecutions for, corporate bribing of foreign officials.

Transparency International categorised the countries into 4 groups in this report, "Active Enforcement", "Moderate Enforcement", "Little Enforcement" and "No Enforcement". Ireland was ranked in the "No Enforcement" category.
