Uniform Principles and Guidelines for Investigations

International Organizations and multilateral institutions have engaged in reform efforts designed to promote accountability and transparency in their internal affairs and in dealing with parties external to the Organization.

As a result of these efforts, Organizations have established internal offices with responsibility for the conduct of investigations. Towards that end, the participating investigative offices recognized the value of harmonizing their practices and, in April 2003, endorsed a set of guidelines – Uniform Guidelines for Investigations endorsed by the 4th Conference of International Investigators.

These Principles and Guidelines are intended to be used as guidance in the conduct of investigations subject to the, regulations, rules, policies and the privileges and immunities applicable in each organization.
