Certification ISO 37001 Anti Bribery
ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System

ISO 37001 - Anti-bribery Management Systems is an international Standard applicable to bribery that sets the requirements for the establishment of an Anti-bribery Management System in compliance with anti-bribery laws for an organization. It covers bribery in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. The purpose of developing an Anti-bribery Management System is to cultivate an anti-bribery culture within the organization that will enhance trust and transparency and will result in the general improvement on the workflow of an organization. Specifically, the Anti-bribery Management System can help an organization establish, implement and maintain an anti-bribery program that prevents and detects bribery risks within the organization or enhance existing anti-bribery controls within the organization.

Furthermore, an Anti-bribery Management System can stand alone or can be integrated with other management systems that are already implemented by the organization
