Management System
(ISO 37001)


Bribery represents a serious risk to businesses, with potentially significant legal and financial repercussions for individuals and organizations. Certification to ISO 37001 Anti-bribery Management System supports you in establishing processes to detect, manage and prevent bribery within your organization.

Bribery is one of the most common forms of corruption around the world. The UN and OECD have both adopted conventions aimed at reducing bribery, and anti-bribery legislation is being tightened worldwide, imposing harsher penalties on employees, directors and organizations. 

ISO 37001 certification offers a practical approach to understanding bribery risks in your organization. By implementing and certifying your Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS), you can mitigate bribery risks, meet legislative requirements and create a company culture of integrity.
