Although corruption is caused by variety of reasons, the main tool proposed to prevent and combat corruption is whistleblowing. A member country to the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), Malaysia has enacted the Whistleblower Protection Act (APPM 2010) in 2010 in response to the recommendation to (UNCAC).

It is found that some of the provisions in APPM 2010 are in line with UNCAC, however others are not which may result in ineffectiveness of the Act.
