OLAF’s results in figures

Between 2010-2022, OLAF:

  • Concluded over 2600 investigations
  • Recommended the recovery of over €8.4 billion to the EU budget
  • Issued over 3400 recommendations for judicial, financial, disciplinary and administrative action to be taken by the competent authorities of the Member States and the EU

As a result of OLAF’s investigative work, sums unduly spent were gradually returned to the EU budget, criminals faced prosecution before national courts and better anti-fraud safeguards were put in place throughout Europe.
