Bribery and corruption are serious risks challenging all types of businesses worldwide and have eroded public trust in responsible organisations. As a result, efforts to identify abuses and intensify enforcement of anti-bribery laws worldwide continue to escalate. For these reasons, it is no surprise that the ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Standard, continues to gain acceptance from organisations and governing authorities globally.
ISO 37001 helps organisations mitigate bribery risk in their own operations and throughout their global value chains. It provides a manageable business framework for preventing, detecting and addressing bribery risks that can potentially reduce corporate costs related to bribery misconducts.
ISO 37001 is a flexible business tool that can be adapted by any organisation, large or small, in any country, regardless of business type or bribery risk.
Demonstrating anti-bribery efforts, to control bribery and corruption risks, are crucial to protecting an organisation’s reputation and brand value. Compliance with the ISO 37001 standard can be a key market differentiator when used to minimise the risk of unlawful behavior and showcase an organisation’s dedication to ethical practices. ISO 37001 certification is a valuable credential that can build customer and investor confidence in the organisation’s integrity and credibility.
Intertek’s global network of auditors allows organisations to work directly with local experts, to add value and mitigate risks with a UKAS-accredited ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System certification.
