MACN Anonymous Reporting System

Thank you for taking the time to make this report. Please note that this is an anonymous reporting system. Please do not add anything that can identify yourself, the vessel, or your company. The uploading tool does not record IP addresses nor do we store this data on the website. The data is used in an anonymous and aggregated format to encourage countries’ efforts to mitigate corruption in ports and for MACN member companies to gain better knowledge of specific risks.

Please use the Incident Reporting Survey below to report a single incident. This survey will allow you to enter one (1) type of incident at a time. Please submit separate forms for each incident or use the “Multiple Incident Reporting Form” to report several incidents.

About MACN’s Incident Reporting System

What reporting does

MACN’s anonymous incident reporting system enables maritime players to submit reports on corrupt demands they have faced during port operations. The outputs of the anonymous incident reporting allow members to learn from each other to potentially avoid similar incidents in their own operations. The use of the mechanism has significantly increased over the years. To date, MACN has collected more than 60,000 reports of corrupt demands globally.

MACN uses this data to analyze trends in the frequency of incidents, allowing MACN to target collective action efforts and engage with governments. It has been a successful way to facilitate constructive dialogue in meetings with governments and other stakeholders. Reporting is anonymous and non-attributable: It is not possible for anyone to identify who has submitted a report, and the report does not include details that would identify ships or individuals.

MACN invites both members and non-members to share details of corrupt demands or threats.
