Maritime Anti-Corruption Network

Working toward a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large

Maritime Anti-Corruption Network Overview


Bribery and corruption regulation is ever-tightening. Additionally, stakeholders expect companies to play a significant role in addressing the root causes of corruption. Are you confident that your business risks are well-managed and that you are participating in real efforts to confront systemic issues throughout your global supply chain?

The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) is a global business network working towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large. Established in 2011 by a small group of committed maritime companies, MACN has grown to include over 90 members globally, and has become one of the pre-eminent examples of collective action to tackle corruption.

Our Mission

To work towards the elimination of all forms of maritime corruption by: raising awareness of the challenges faced; implementing the MACN Anti-Corruption Principles and co-developing and sharing best practices; collaborating with governments, non-governmental organizations, and civil society to identify and mitigate the root causes of corruption; and creating a culture of integrity within the maritime community.

Our Accomplishments

  • Four Collective Actions (Argentina, Egypt, Indonesia, Nigeria), including the development and implementation of new Standard Operating Procedures and grievance mechanisms, and the successful adoption of new regulations
  • Creation of anonymous incident reporting mechanisms with regular report-outs for members, which allow captains to prepare more thoroughly and show hot spots for corruption where collective action is required
  • Development of a suite of resources for members, including the MACN Integrity Training Toolkit for key internal stakeholders in the maritime industry such as captains, onboard staff, compliance officers, and senior management
  • Launch and roll-out in Nigeria and Indonesia in 2016 of the MACN Integrity Champion Training—a tailor-made training for port officials.
