This sixth Annual Forum on Combating Corruption in the EU, co-financed by OLAF, will gather approximately one hundred lawyers to debate the topic of internal and external auditing in the context of the protection of the EU budget.

The first session will be dedicated to a general overview of the European legal framework for combating corruption, highlighting the recent EU anti-corruption and anti-fraud strategy.

The focus will then move towards auditing activities. Public expenditure is subject to several means of control; therefore it is vital to examine the role and the function of different EU and national bodies in order to guarantee an effective protection of the European Union budget against fraud or irregularities.
Who are the main EU players in the field? What are the main difficulties in establishing valid evidence on damages resulting from fraud and irregularities? What is the function of OLAF in this respect? Is forensic audit a necessary and appropriate tool in order to determine whether damages occurred?

The Forum will highlight the importance of a coordinated approach by internal and external EU control bodies in order to prevent fraud and irregularities and better protect the financial interest of the European Union. The role, the power (and the limits) of control bodies such as the European Court of Auditors, OLAF and the European Commission in complex cases will be scrutinised.
