The CCDI was created to fight corruption and other abuses within the ranks of the Communist Party of China (CPS). The watchdog conducts internal investigations before deciding whether to hand the case over to the judicial authorities.

After assuming office in 2012, Chinese President Xi Jinping initiated a large-scale campaign to secure discipline and to fight corruption, primarily targeting high-level officials in the CPC, the armed forces and state-run enterprises.
