Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Solutions

Address bribery and corruption to protect your people and your business.

Corruption and bribery affect any organisation, large or small, public or not-for-profit. It has the potential to cause severe harm to your business, including financial loss, dire legal consequences, damage to your brand, company’s reputation and sustainable development. Therefore anti-bribery needs to be managed correctly and effectively.

ISO has developed an ISO 37001:2016 ABMS standard to help organisations promote an ethical business culture. “Designed to help your organisation implement an anti-bribery management system (ABMS), and/or enhance the controls you currently have. It helps to reduce the risk of bribery [and corruption] occurring and can demonstrate to your stakeholders that you have put in place internationally recognised good-practice anti-bribery [and anti-corruption] controls”.

 

ADDRESS BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION

The first step of demonstrating your organisation’s commitment to implementing an effective anti-bribery management system is to commit to ISO 37001 training and/or ISO 37001 certification. In order to offer you ISO 37001 training and/or certification, CRI Group launched an Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption ABAC® Center of Excellence. Learn more about our services below.
