What is ISO 37001 Certification?

ISO 37001 is the new international standard for anti-bribery management systems, replacing BS 10500 in October 2016.

Bribery can happen anywhere, be of any value, and may involve financial or non-financial advantages or benefits.

ISO 37001 has been intended to fuse a progression of measures that speak to universally perceived practices, which an association must actualize to help them forestall, distinguish and address bribery.

ISO 37001 certification enables your organization to use a series of measures that will function as a framework for you to implement controls that will enhance your ability to deal with bribery risk.

Where it is often implemented.

ISO 37001 is often implemented in any organization, no matter industry, location, and size, and may help protect your organization from:

  • Bribery by and against your organization or your staff

  • Bribes paid or received by your organization or a 3rd party.

ISO 37001 is meant to be employed by small, medium, and enormous organizations within the public, private and voluntary sectors.

It is often employed by such a good range of organizations because the quality is meant to be a versatile tool, which may be adapted consistently with the dimensions and nature of the organization and therefore the bribery risk it faces.
