The IACAC establishes a number of anti-corruption measures, including the following:

Criminalisation: Establishes the criminalisation of corrupt acts, including bribery and illicit enrichment.

Cooperation: Includes provisions to strengthen cooperation between its States Parties for mutual legal assistance, technical cooperation, extradition and identification.

Asset Recovery: Includes provisions to strengthen cooperation between its States Parties for tracing, freezing, seizing and forfeiting the proceeds of acts of corruption.

Monitoring: The IACAC Follow-Up Mechanism (MESICIC) provides a comprehensive system of inter-state monitoring and compliance assessments.
