The Commission Against Corruption (CCAC, Chinese: 廉政公署; Portuguese: Comissariado contra a Corrupção) is an official body of Macau responsible for the prevention, investigation and (probably) prosecution of corrupt activities.
The commission was established, pursuant to article 59 of Macau's Basic Law, following the 1999 transfer of sovereignty over Macau from Portugal to China. It is modelled after Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption. The CCAC replaced the High Commission Against Corruption and Administrative Illegality, which was created in 1990 and began operating in 1992.
Per Law No. 10/2000 of 14 August, the CCAC carries the following major statutory duties:
- To carry out preventive actions against acts of corruption or fraud.
- To investigate any crimes of corruption and fraud committed by civil servants.
- To investigate allegation of corruption and fraud in electoral registration and election of members of the institutions in the Macau SAR.
- To protect human rights, freedom and legitimate interests of individuals, as well as to uphold fairness, lawfulness and efficiency of the public administration.

History of Investigations
In November 2013, the CCAC releases an investigation and analysis report on complaints regarding the Granting of Public Service of Road Mass Transport. The original complaint was received on May 30, 2013 and due to the filing of bankruptcy of Reolian on October 3, 2013, the CCAC released their findings. As one of the results of the report, lawmakers in Macau suggested Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Lau Si Io, to resign.
