The Corruption-Free Pledge (better known as IBR) is a recent initiative introduced by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) as a brainchild of the Chief Commissioner himself, Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad. The IBR places emphasis on the pledge and oath voluntarily taken by an organisation’s leadership and members in an individual capacity to hold each of them accountable and responsible for carrying out their duties and to hinder them from engaging in any corruption misconduct throughout their tenure.
Openness and accountability displayed by the leadership and staff in signing the Corruption-Free Pledge also attest that fighting and combating corruption is not the exclusive responsibility of MACC per se; on the other hand, it is the collective duty and responsibility of all members of society, particularly those serving in government agencies, to achieve a nation free from all forms of corruption and abuse of power.
1. Pledge by an individual
2. Witnessed by MACC

4. To serve as assurance that the organisation has taken the necessary steps to prevent corruption.
