National Anti-Corruption Commission

The Albanese Government is restoring integrity, honesty and accountability to government with the commencement of the National Anti-Corruption Commission.

During the 2022 Federal election Australians were clear: they wanted a national anti-corruption commission watchdog.

Labor said if elected we would legislate a powerful, transparent and independent National Anti-Corruption Commission by the end of 2022.

Within months of being elected, the Albanese Labor Government passed legislation to establish the National Anti-Corruption Commission.

From 1 July 2023, the National Anti-Corruption Commission began its work, acting as a powerful watchdog, delivering accountability and transparency that is rightly expected by the Australian public.

This will strengthen our democracy and public institutions.

The Commission has strong powers to detect, investigate and prevent corruption across the entire Commonwealth sector.
