The Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) independently monitors and evaluates national and international efforts to fight corruption in Afghanistan. It reports to the public, Parliament, President, and international community. It was created through Presidential Decree 61 after the need for an autonomous anti-corruption monitoring and evaluation body was identified at the London and Kabul conferences in 2010.On September 18, 2016, the Afghan President issued Presidential Decree 115. This changed the legal status, duties, scope of activities and authorities of MEC, which abrogates all previous Presidential Decrees. By March 10, 2020, the tenure of MEC Committee Members came to a natural end and MEC is still awaiting the appointment of new Committee Members by the Afghan Government and the international community.
