Since 1 January 2009, the Richtlinie zur Korruptionsprävention und Korruptionsbekämpfung in der Landesverwaltung (Antikorruptionsrichtlinie) (Directive on preventing and combating corruption in the state administration (Anti-corruption directive)) applies to employees of the state of Lower Saxony. The directive contains rules aimed at effectively preventing corruption. With their help, corrupt practices are to be identified at an early stage and, if necessary, prosecuted and sanctioned.
