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. Anti-Bribery Solutions
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
Make sure you understand the risks your business may be exposed to when facing bribery and corruption. Industries such as construction, energy, oil, gas, mining and financial services present a greater risk, as employees are more likely to engage in bribery in these areas. Think about the types of transactions your business engages in, or how your business entertains potential customers, how you operate in foreign jurisdictions and if you comply with local laws.
Can you provide credible evidence that your company (and relevant individuals) have proactively employed mechanisms to prevent corruption? Can you prove that your organisation has successfully implemented “adequate procedures” to prevent bribery?
