Specific: ❌ no

The commitment is a statement about the position of the United States regarding the actions other countries should take criminalising bribery of domestic and foreign officials, and is therefore not specific.

The United States clarified in its new anti-corruption strategy that “Using a range of diplomatic and foreign assistance programming, the U.S. Government is committed to working with allies and partners on enacting legislation criminalising the demand side of bribery, and enforcing new and existing laws, including in the countries where the bribery occurs”.[1] However, as the IACC commitment does not mention US support, this information cannot be used to further specify the commitment in question.
