While it has an individual independent status in its investigative function, OLAF is also part of the European Commission, under the responsibility of Johannes Hahn, Commissioner in charge of Budget and Administration.

A body of five outside experts - the Supervisory Committee - reinforce and guarantee OLAF’s independence by regularly monitoring the implementation of OLAF’s investigative function.
