The approach based on high-level structures (High Level Structures), which is implemented in ISO 37001, allows you to apply a standardized model of detection, assessment and analysis of the company's corruption risks, which is used in other management systems.
The standard applies to organizations of all sizes and types, whether commercial companies, public authorities or public organizations. It can be integrated into the company's existing compliance program and aligned with the requirements of ISO 19600 (Compliance Management Systems) and other high-level structures based on ISO standards of management systems. In addition, ISO 37001 can be implemented as an independent management system. International organizations are influenced by different jurisdictions and cultures, where corruption laws and regulations vary widely. If a company is listed on stock exchanges, for example in the USA or the UK, the laws of those countries oblige the company to treat corruption with the same seriousness when carrying out any of its activities in the country. ISO 37001 ensures international standardization of your procedures and training.
By formalizing training and procedures that ensure the integrity of the enterprise, ISO 37001 allows: Identify points of corruption and establish appropriate control measures; reduce the risk of prosecution for non-compliance with local or international anti-corruption laws; Demonstrate a leading role in the field of ethics, which encourages employees and business partners to solve corruption problems; Restore the trust of the public, customers, stakeholders and staff after a corruption incident.
Prove that your organization complies with anti-corruption legislation and has implemented reasonable and adequate measures aimed at preventing bribery; Strengthen the image of the organization and avoid the costs and reputational risks associated with corruption; Demonstrate the reliability and integrity of the company to all stakeholders: owners, directors, employees, authorities and business partners; Discover new business opportunities.
