       The Government of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria considers that no dispute of such nature may be submitted to arbitration or to the International Court of Justice without the consent of all the parties to the dispute.
       Declaration:
       The ratification of this Convention by the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria does not in any way signify recognition of Israel.
       The present ratification may not be interpreted as leading to the establishment of relations of any kind with Israel.

Azerbaijan

Declarations:
       "The Republic of Azerbaijan declares that it will be unable to guarantee compliance with the provisions of this Convention in its territories occupied by the Republic of Armenia until these territories are liberated from that occupation.
       The Republic of Azerbaijan declares that none of the rights, obligations and provisions set out in the Convention shall be applied by the Republic of Azerbaijan in respect of the Republic of Armenia.

Reservation:
       In accordance with paragraph 3 of Article 66 of the Convention, the Republic of Azerbaijan declares that it does not consider itself bound by paragraph 2 of Article 66."

Bahamas
       Reservation:
       “Pursuant to Article 66, paragraph 3 of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, the Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas declares that it does not consider itself bound by the provisions of Article 66, paragraph 2 of the Convention. The Government of the Bahamas asserts that the consent of all parties to such a dispute is necessary, in each individual case, before the dispute is submitted to arbitration or to the International Court of Justice.”
Bahrain

Reservation:
       "The Kingdom of Bahrain does not consider itself bound by article 66, pararaph 2 of the Convention."

Bangladesh

Reservation:
       "Pursuant to Article 66, paragraph 3 of the Convention, People's Republic of Bangladesh does not consider itself bound by the provisions of Article 66, paragraph 2 of the Convention."

Belgium
       Reservation:
       The Belgian Government entered the following reservation concerning the implementation of article 29 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, done in New York on 31 October 2003 at the time of the deposit of its instrument of ratification, the
       text of which reads as follows:
       “In accordance with articles 21 and 22 of the preliminary part of the Belgian Code of Criminal Procedure, the fact that an alleged perpetrator of an offence established in accordance with this Convention has evaded the administration of justice shall not extend or
       suspend the statute of limitations period in which to commence proceedings.”
Brunei Darussalam

Reservation:
       « Brunei Darussalam does not consider itself bound by the provisions of paragraph 2 of Article 66 and therefore take the position that disputes relating to the interpretation or application of the Convention which cannot be settled through the channel provided for in paragraph 2 of the said Article may be referred to the International Court of Justice only with the consent of the parties to the dispute.”

Canada

Declarations:
       "1.  Article 14 (1) (b):
       Article 14 (1) (b) provides that the obligation of a State Party to exchange financial intelligence shall be ‘within the conditions prescribed by its domestic law.' Given that Canadian law only permits the exchange of information between Financial Intelligence Units through bilateral agreements or arrangements, Canada will provide for exchange of the information referred to in this article only pursuant to such a bilateral agreement or arrangement.
       2.  Article 17:
       It is the understanding of the Government of Canada that in relation to Article 17 the word ‘diversion' means embezzlement and misappropriation, which constitute the criminal offences of theft and fraud under current Canadian law.
       3.  Article 20:
       Article 20 provides that the obligation of a State Party to criminalize illicit enrichment shall be ‘subject to its constitution and the fundamental principles of its legal system.' An offence of illicit enrichment is incompatible with the Constitution of Canada, more specifically with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the fundamental principles of the Canadian legal system.  Canada will therefor not create the offence of illicit enrichment.
       4.  Article 42 (2):
       Article 42 (2) provides that a State Party ‘may' establish jurisdiction based on nationality.  Given that Canada has effective and broad territorial jurisdiction over corruption offences, Canada does not intend to extend its jurisdiction in the case of an offence committed by a Canadian national beyond that existing territorial basis of jurisdiction.
       5.  Article 52:
       Canada already imposes strict requirements on financial institutions within its jurisdiction to closely scrutinize foreign persons with prominent public functions and theirfamily members and close associates.  It is the understanding of the Government of Canada that these current requirements satisfy Article 52, particularly in light of the negotiations of the State Paich led to the creation and inclusion of Article 52 in the Convention.  Canada is in the process of undergoing consultations with a view to implementing legislative changes that would broaden this existing due diligence beyond the obligations contained in the Convention and expand the category of persons covered and the financial institutions in whom they apply.  Canada will inform the Depository of the outcome of these discussions.
       6.  Article 54:
       Canada will provide international assistance for the freezing, seizure and forfeiture of proceeds of crime and offence-related property only when the request is accompanied by an order from a court of criminal jurisdiction in the requesting country.  In the case where international assistance is required for the forfeiture of this property, Canada will provide assistance only when the request is accompanied by a final order from such a court."

Cuba

Reservation:
       The Republic of Cuba declares that, pursuant to article 66, paragraph 3, of the Convention, it does not consider itself bound by the provisions of paragraph 2 of this article, which deals with the settlement of disputes arising between States parties concerning the interpretation or application of this Convention and referral of such disputes to the International Court of Justice, because it believes that such disputes should be resolved through amicable negotiations between the States parties.

The foregoing applies exclusively to the context of the process for the settlement of disputes set forth in the said article.

To the extent that provisions of Community law are affected by the provisions of the Convention, the European Community has an exclusive competence to accept such obligations with respect to its own public administration.

       2. The Community also points out that it has competence with regard to the proper functioning of the internal market, comprising an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, capital and services is ensured in accordance with the provisions of the Treaty establishing the European Community. For this purpose, the Community has adopted measures to:
       - ensure transparency and the equal access of all candidates for public contracts and markets of Community relevance, thereby contributing to preventing corruption,
       - ensure appropriate standards on accounting and auditing of Community relevance,
       - prevent money laundering; such measures do not, however, include those concerning cooperation among judicial and law enforcement authorities.
       Where it has adopted measures, it is for the Community alone to enter into external undertakings with third States or competent international organisations which affect those measures or alter their scope.
       3. Community policy in the sphere of development cooperation as well as cooperation with other third countries complements policies pursued by Member States to support partner countries in the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption and includes provisions to combat corruption.
       4. The scope and exercise of Community competence are, by their nature, subject to continuous development and the Community will complete or amend thisdeclaration, if necessary, in accordance with Article 67 (3) of the Convention.
       5. The United Nations Convention against Corruption shall apply, with regard to the competence of the Community, to the territories in which the Treaty establishing the European Community is applied and under the conditions laid down in that Treaty, in particular Article 299 thereof.
       Pursuant to Article 299 of that Treaty, this declaration is not applicable to the territories of the Member States in which the said Treaty does not apply and is without prejudice to such acts or positions as may be adopted under the Convention by the Member States concerned on behalf of, and in the interests of, those territories."
       "With respect to Article 66, paragraph 2, the Community points out that, according to Article 34, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice, only States may be parties before that Court.

United States of America

Reservations and declarations:
"Reservations
       (1) The United States of America reserves the right to assume obligations under the Convention in a manner consistent with its fundamental principles of federalism, pursuant to which both federal and state criminal laws must be considered in relation to the conduct addressed in the Convention.  U.S. federal criminal law, which regulates conduct based on its effect on interstate or foreign commerce, or another federal interest, serves as an important component of the legal regime within the United States for combating corruption and is broadly effective for this purpose.  Federal criminal law does not apply where such criminal conduct does not so involve interstate or foreign commerce, or another federal interest.  There are conceivable situations involving offenses of a purely local character where U.S. federal and state criminal law may not be entirely adequate to satisfy an obligation under the Convention.  Similarly, in the U.S. system, the states are responsible for preventive measures governing their own officials.  While the states generally regulate their own affairs in a manner consistent with the obligations set forth in the chapter on preventive measures in the Convention, in some cases they may do so in a different manner.  Accordingly, there may be situations where state and federal law will not be entirely adequate to satisfy an obligation in Chapters II and III of the Convention.  The United States of America therefore reserves to the obligations set forth in the Convention to the extent they (1) address conduct that would fall within this narrow category of highly localized activity or (2) involve preventive measures not covered by federal law governing state and local officials.This reservation does not affect in any respect the ability of the United States to provide international cooperation to other States Parties in accordance with the provisions of the Convention.
       (2) The United States of America reserves the right not to apply in part the obligation set forth in Article 42, paragraph 1 (b) with respect to the offenses established in accordance with the Convention.  The United States does not provide for plenary jurisdiction over offenses that are committed on board ships flying its flag or aircraft registered under its laws.  However, in many circumstances, U.S. law provides for jurisdiction over such offenses committed on board U.S. - flagged ships or aircraft registered under U.S. law.  Accordingly, the United States shall implement paragraph 1 (b) to the extent provided for under its federal law.
Declarations
       (1) In accordance with Article 66, paragraph 3, the United States of America declares that it does not consider itself bound by the obligations set forth in Article 66, paragraph 2.
       (2) The United States declares that the provisions of the Convention (with the exception of Articles 44 and 46) are non-self-executing. None of the provisions of the Convention creates a private right of action.

Uzbekistan

Declaration:
       “… to paragraphs 1 and 3 of Article 42 of the Convention: The Republic of Uzbekistan declares that in accordance with the national legislation, offenses described in articles 15-19, 21, 22, paragraph 1 of the article 23, articles 24, 25, 27 are criminal offenses and on them the jurisdiction of the Republic of Uzbekistan shall be applied …”

Upon Ratification

       Concerning the provisions of article 44, paragraph 11, the extradition of nationals is expressly prohibited under Venezuelan law. In that regard, Venezuela undertakes, at the request of the State party seeking extradition, to submit the case without undue delay to its competent authorities for the purpose of prosecution.

Objections

Netherlands

6 December 2007

Ojection to the reservations made by the United States of America upon ratification:

       “The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has carefully examined the reservations made by the United States of America to the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
       The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands considers that reservations which consist of a reference to the federal structure of a State or to its national legislation leave it uncertain to which extent that State accepts to be bound by the obligations under the treaty. It is in the common interest of States that treaties which they decide to ratify or accede to be fully complied with by all parties and that States be prepared to adapt their national legislation to their obligations under such treaties. Reservations such as the ones made by the United States, which declare that obligations under the Convention will be assumed to the extent consistent with its fundamental principles of federalism or national law, undermine the basis of the international law of treaties. The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands therefore objects to these reservations.
       It is the understanding of the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands that the reservations of the United States of America do not exclude or modify the legal effect of provisions of the Convention in their application to the United States.
       This objection does not constitute an obstacle to the entry into force of the Convention between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the United States.”
