In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, the United Nations Postal Administration has joined with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to produce a personalized stamp sheet. The sheet will be introduced at the sixth session of the Conference of the States Parties to the Convention in Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation, on 2 November 2015.
Corruption is an insidious plague that has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies. It undermines democracy and the rule of law, leads to violations of human rights, distorts markets, erodes the quality of life and allows organised crime, terrorism and other threats to human security to flourish. The Convention introduces a comprehensive set of standards, measures and rules that all countries can apply in order to strengthen their legal and regulatory regimes to fight corruption, thus creating forward momentum towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The sheet is composed of ten € 0.80 denominated stamps and was designed by Rorie Katz and Eduardo Sinoy (United Nations). The personalized stamps sheet “UNCAC” will be provided automatically to customers who have standing order requirements for Vienna special personalized stamp sheets (art. 94).
