Result: Upon thorough investigation of the issue, the author concluded that the anticorruption compliance system should be approved upon discussion with public officials, offered a new form of this discussion to be effective and to function in fighting against corruption offenses in domestic practice, and noticed that compliance management should involve professional standards, powers distribution regulation, and ethics rules determination.
