About the Guide
Understanding the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act
Act 12 of 2004

Corruption affects the lives of everyone in South Africa – it is our common enemy. The government has therefore developed many policies and laws to try to combat and prevent corruption – both in government and in the private sector. This guide has been produced by the National Anti-Corruption Forum and is about one of these laws – the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act.

This guide has been written in plain language and includes a brief overview of the Act in all of South Africa's official languages. It is aimed at:

• Members of the public sector
• Members of the private sector (businesses)
• Members of the public
• Anyone doing training on the Act

"We hope that the simplified version of the Act will assist South Africans to know what their rights and obligations are in respect of the reporting of corruption."
