Anti-Bribery Management System

Continually improve your business with the international anti-bribery management system

Corruption in the widest possible sense presents any misuse of position by an official or a person performing a particular function, which pursues personal and/or material gain. In the business world, it distorts competition, increases business costs and affects the quality of goods or services provided by a particular company.

For this reason, the international standard ISO 37001 has been adopted as an anti-bribery management system that reflects international good practice and is applicable in all legal systems – small, medium and large organizations and in all sectors, including state, public and private sector.

Based on its set of principles, any organization can significantly detect bribery. However, even the standard ISO 37001 can not 100% guarantee that bribery is not or will not happen, but it can guarantee that it will, at the very least, be reduced to the lowest possible level.

In other words, ISO 37001 standard helps you to:

  • Improve the existing internal controls of the organization;
  • Provide evidence to the management and owners of organizations, its financiers, beneficiaries and other business associates that the organization has applied internationally recognized good practice of controlling corruption;
  • In case of an investigation, provide evidence to prosecutors or courts that the organization has taken all relevant steps to prevent bribery.

Also, if you have already begun the introduction of ISO 37001, we can help you complete the whole process more easily and thus gain more benefits from the anti-bribery management system.

Just select the phase in which you are and begin today with creating a better future for your business.
