The article studies the issues of combating corruption in the aspect of its incorporation into international standards. Corruption has been identified as a threat to democracy and economic development in many States. It arises from the process of the exchange of power for material assets, that is, when a competent person performs or refrains from performing certain actions for remuneration, and due to the weakness or weakness of the state, political, and public institutions that control and limit these processes. It is noted that the world community is seriously thinking about those negative consequences (threat of statehood, undermining trust in the authorities, causing harm to the individual, society, the functioning of organized crime, a drop in the level of professionalism of employees, a decrease in the level of legal awareness of spirituality) caused by corruption, and realizes that all States need to act as one to achieve serious positive results. It is noted that the international community, to develop effective measures to prevent and eradicate corruption, has adopted several international treaties, as well as recommendations that are not binding but are used by States as effective mechanisms for monitoring corruption.
