Let your integrity set you apart with ISO 37001 anti-bribery certification
Corruption is a serious threat to any organisation. Recent conventions by the United Nations and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development aimed to crack down on bribery offences and as a result, 41 countries have established laws anti-bribery laws. These include the UK’s 2010 Bribery Act and US’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, both of which have transnational reach. Not only will organisations whose representatives are found giving or receiving bribes be subject to hefty financial penalties, but directors themselves also risk personal criminal or civil liability.
The wide-reaching scope of this new legislation is driving a move to formalise management systems. Increasingly, organisations are seeking to achieve and maintain certification to the international standard ISO 37001 Anti-bribery management systems.
HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU
Our expert team can support with the implementation of a management system based on ISO 37001, which enables you to establish procedures to prevent, detect and manage the risk of bribery in your organisation.
It also helps you to ensure that those working for and on behalf of the company (such as partners, subcontractors, suppliers and intermediaries) do business with integrity. As a result, you reduce your exposure to prosecution for non-compliance with local or international anti-bribery laws.
In addition, we offer a series of blended learning courses to support your teams in understanding anti-bribery management systems and grasping the principles of ISO 37001 certification. We also offer training for internal auditors charged with verifying implementation of the management system.
