The RL aims to provide understandable and, by means of few rules, a guideline for integrity and fair and transparent administrative action.

Ethical principles and the rejection of corruption should be firmly established within   the employees at the headquarters of the Federal Foreign Office and the posted diplomats and local staff at the diplomatic missions .

Important concerns of corruption prevention at the headquarters of the Federal Foreign Office and at the diplomatic missions abroad include sensitizing employees to the issue, protecting against possible corruption risks and maintaining high ethical standards as an integral part of all administrative acts.
