To commit with our promise to ensure the highest quality of certification and training services, ABAC® is affiliated with leading certification and accreditation bodies around the world.

For two years we have gone from strength to strength, having hosted two ABAC Summits in both Pakistan and Malaysia, with plans for more to come.
2018 has seen great advances for us. This year CRI Group has been granted accreditation by the Emirates International Accreditation Center – EIAC (formerly known as Dubai Accreditation Center – DAC) for the scope of ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System Conformity Assessment Body. The accreditation is the first of its kind awarded to a certification body specialising in global anti-bribery and anti-corruption, risk and compliance standards.
Similarly, our application for UKAS has now been accepted and we are working hard towards achieving this further accreditation, thus giving us that greater credibility edge. We are excited to see where the next two years moving forward will take us.
Let’s stay connected!
3 Years Anniversary
CRI Group’s ABAC® Center of Excellence is proud to be celebrating three-years anniversary since its formation back in 2016. For three years, ABAC has gone from strength to strength, having hosted three ABAC® Summits in Karachi, Islamabad and Kuala Lumpur, with plans for more to come. During this time, ABAC® was accredited by EIAC for administering ISO 37001 certification, audited and awarded clients with ISO 37001 ABMS certifications, collaborated with Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Transparency International, The Malaysian Youth Council and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Foundation to develop a nationwide anti-corruption awareness campaign on International Anti-Corruption Day and initiated other activities to fight bribery and corruption globally. Bribery and corruption is everybody’s problem, and it cannot be prevented and detected if your employees aren’t provided with the information and training they need to combat it.
ABAC® is committed to promoting transparency and compliance to businesses and their professional relationships. Let’s address bribery and corruption together.
