The Agence Française Anticorruption (AFA) is a French administrative authority with national competence, acting under the supervision of the French Ministers of Justice and Budget. Its purpose is to assist authorities in the prevention and detection of corruption offences, influence peddling or embezzlement.
AFA was created in 2016, when the French legislator enacted Sapin Il, a legislative arsenal aiming to provide efficient mechanisms to eradicate corruption. Replacing the Central Service for the Prevention of Corruption (SCPC), AFA has a broader scope to more effectively address corruption issues and comply with international requirements. Website
