States, with the participation of civil society organizations,
established within the framework of the OAS, in which the
legal/institutional framework of each country is reviewed for
suitability with the Inter-American Convention against Corruption as
well as the objective results achieved therein. The incorporation of
on-site visits as a stage and integral part of the MESICIC
represents an innovative and pioneering initiative of the OAS,
which, with the support of the Technical Secretariat, has further
strengthened this review process.
