What is the ISO 37001: 2016 Anti-Bribery Management System?

ISO 37001

We’ve mentioned that ISO 37001 is our strength, but what exactly is it and what comprises this international standard?

In 2016, the International Standards Organisation launched its very first anti-bribery management system, the ISO 37001, in response to trillions of dollars lost globally each year due to bribery and corruption. The International Monetary Fund estimates that nations and businesses around the world lose around US$1.5 to 2 trillion every year. Tremendous amounts of money are wasted and businesses are incurring untold liabilities due to the acts of a greedy few.

ISO 37001 weaves together the different measures and systems created around the world by various business entities, resulting in a global best practice framework designed specifically for establishing integrity programmes. The standard assures international investors, potential business partners and clients that the ISO 37001-certified organisation has the controls, systems, and programmes in place that ensure the integrity of their operations and protect against corruption losses and potential corporate liability.
