  21. 21. Anti-corruption sector package Modality Example Key data elements & features Prevention Banks and other institutions can draw upon open corporate registries, beneficial ownership registers and politically exposed persons data in order to better implement Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering regulation. With open registers, civil society can check the quality of the lists being used, building trusts in the compliance process - rather than the datasets used being ‘black boxes’. Unique identifiers for legal entities, and clear data-driven approach to identify beneficial owners. Detection A procurement agency may use a list of debarred firms, bidders, prior contract performance information, and information on shareholders and politically exposed persons for red flag analysis - detecting potential cases of corrupt dealing. Timely and forward looking data on contracting processes. Investigation Investigative journalists can draw upon open data to more quickly develop leads and stories, leading to an increase in the coverage of corruption cases. A common pattern may be for investigations to uncover fraudulent documents by comparing them to official records of licenses, permits or certificates. Comprehensive and reliable public registers of companies, licenses, contracts,permits or certificates. Enforcement Law enforcement from one country can use open data on companies and beneficial ownership from other countries to collect the specific facts they need to build a criminal case against corrupt persons or companies. Linkage between data elements and key documents, or ability of the data to function as evidence to allow prosecution and eventually in court. Initial ideas in the consultation document
  22. 22. Anti-corruption sector package Four key cross-cutting areas for focus are identified from the G20 anti-corruption agenda: • Extractives industry transparency • Construction sector transparency • Public procurement and open contracting • Integrity of public officials
