New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has published guidelines for combating bribery and corruption in offshore markets.

These include:

Having a clear policy against bribery;
Conducting due diligence of possible or existing partners/agents;
Having procedures for dealing with corrupt situations that encourage disclosure; and
Maintaining regular internal audit of procedures and how they are working.
