Bribery and corruption are serious concerns to businesses, government agencies and non-profit organisations. In fact, the risk of being associated with the negative impacts of this type of fraud extends to third party partners and influences present and future businesses relationships.
In this business climate, consider the tremendous advantage your organisation will enjoy if it is ISO 37001:2016 certified to prevent bribery and corruption, a designation you can proudly communicate to the public and market to potential partners. CRI’s ABAC Center of Excellence provides that assurance – not just to you, but to your potential partners, as well.
Due diligence as a critical business tool
When it comes to due diligence, CRI Group helps organisations thoroughly evaluate third-party partners for red flags, such as:
- Reputational risk
- Compliance risk
- Operational risk
- Business risk
- Strategic risk
- Credit risk
- Country/location risk
The flip side of that coin is that organisations that are identified as ethical and maintaining a zero-tolerance approach to fraud gain immediate preference over others in their industry or field. By engaging with CRI Group, your organisation can immediately see the benefits of ISO 37001:2016 certification by being established and recognised as a potential partner or provider that is ethical and effective at preventing bribery and corruption, satisfying all of the risk criteria above.
The benefits of being certified
Here are just a few of the benefits of participating in training and certification opportunities offered through ABAC Center of Excellence:
- ISO 37001:2016 certification helps ensure that your organisation is implementing a viable anti-bribery management system.
- It provides assurance to management, investors, business associates, personnel and other stakeholders that the organisation is actively pursuing internationally recognised and accepted processes to prevent bribery and corruption.
- In legal proceedings, having completed the certification process provides acceptable evidence to prosecutors or courts that the organisation has taken reasonable steps to prevent bribery and corruption.
- Certification helps set your organisation apart as a proactive, ethical team that would be a preferred partner, supplier and/or service provider for other businesses or agencies.
Don’t delay – the sooner your organisation is certified to prevent bribery and corruption, the sooner you can build stronger and more beneficial relationships.
