In view of the fact that anti-corruption activities were then carried out by three different agencies, the Government decided to consolidate the task of investigation, prevention and prosecution under one umbrella by setting-up the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) in 1967 in accordance with the Anti-Corruption Act 1967. In 1973, the ACA changed its name to the National Bureau of Investigations (NBI) in accordance with the passing of the NBI Act 1973, becoming a full fledged department under the Home Ministry and with greater powers to investigate corruption cases including those of national interest. Subsequently, in a move to specialise the anti-corruption body in terms of its roles and functions, NBI was re-named back to ACA in 1982 with the passing of the ACA Act 1982 thus making ACA as a single and special entity in fighting corruption in Malaysia.
In 2008, the Parliament and the Government unanimously approved the formation of an independent anti-corruption commission to be known as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and replacing the ACA Act 1982 to the MACC Act.The MACC Act 2009 came to effect on 1 January 2009 which led to the official establishment of the MACC as an independent, transparent and professional body to effectively and efficiently manage the nation’s anti-corruption efforts.
In moving towards convincing the public of the MACC’s independency, transparency and professionalism, a ‘Check and Balance Mechanism’ was created through the formation of a five panel independent body to closely and constantly monitor the functions of the MACC. This 'check and balance mechanism' comprises of the Anti-Corruption Advisory Board (ACAB), the Special Committee on Corruption (SCC), the Complaints Committee (CC), the Operations Review Panel (ORP) and the Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel (CCPP) that functions to advise as well as to ensure that the functions and roles of the MACC are implemented efficiently, effectively, independently, with transparency and professionally.Members of these bodies represent the general public and comprise of senior ex-government officials, politicians (government and opposition), professionals from the business and corporate sector, academicians, lawyers and well respected individuals.
Fairness to act fairly without prejudice and discrimination at all times accordance with the law.
Firmness to investigate all corruption cases objectively and impartially.
- Trustworthy to discharge one’s duty with full responsibility at all times.
Section 7 Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 as follows:
To receive and consider any report of the commission of an offence under this Act and investigate such of the reports as the Chief Commissioner or the officers consider practicable;
To detect and investigate :-
- Any suspected offence under Act 2009;
- Any suspected attempt to commit any offence under Act 2009; and
- Any suspected conspiracy to commit any offence under this Act;
To examine the practices, systems and procedures of public bodies in order to facilitate the discovery of offences under this Act and to secure the revision of such practices, systems or procedures as in the opinion of the Chief Commissioner may be conducive to corruption;
To instruct, advise and assist any person, on the latter’s request, on ways in which corruption may be eliminated by such person;
To advise heads of public bodies of any changes in practices, systems or procedures compatible with the effective discharge of the duties of the public bodies as the Chief Commissioner thinks necessary to reduce the likelihood of the occurrence of corruption;
To educate the public against corruption; and
To enlist and foster public support against corruption
To create a corrupt-free Malaysian society based on high spiritual and moral values;

To eradicate corruption, abuse of power and malpractice in Malaysia; and
- To concertedly and continuously strengthen integrity and enhance expertise through human resources development programmes.
- To incessantly eradicate all forms of corruption, abuse of power and malpractice.
The MACC adopts a three-pronged strategy in fighting corruption in line with the

- Investigate corruption offences
Detect the risk of corruption in work practices, systems and procedures; and
- Advise (as deem necessary) on the likelihood of the occurrence of corruption.
Educate the public against corruption
- Enlist and foster public support against corruption
The MACC aims to be a professional anti-corruption commission in enforcing the law and educating the public against corruption in moving towards greater prevention and ultimately to eradicate corruption in Malaysia through the following principles:
The Code of Ethics and Conduct of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) combines moral values with the uniformed deeds and actions to guide MACC officers to perform their duties and responsibilities with the objective to:-
Strengthen the level of integrity of MACC officers in the execution of their duties and responsibilities; and
Clarify permissible and non-permissible actions by MACC officers in accordance to the enforced policies, guidelines and the law
INTEGRITY is a core element in the Code of Ethics and Conduct of the MACC. The core values of integrity upholding the MACC in shaping the "MACC Values" are : Trustworthy, Firm, Fair, Independent, Transparent and Professional. In addition, positive values such as Discipline, Cooperation, Loyalty and Commitment also form the "MACC Values", to be consistently upheld by all MACC officers in executing their duties and responsibilities.
