ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems

  • ISO 37001:2016 is an international management system standard against bribery, issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The aim of the standard is to support companies and organizations in combating bribery risks in their own operations and in their global value chains to prevent and detect bribery and to create international comparability in anti-corruption management. ISO itself is the international association of more than 160 national standardization bodies that work together in ISO technical committees to develop international standards. ISO Standard 37001 was published for the first time on 15 October 2016 under the title “Anti-bribery management systems – Requirements with guidance for use”. ISO 37001 is based on the British standard 10500 and refers to international anti-corruption principles and guidelines. The standard is open to all types of organizations, regardless of their size, legal form, or geographical location. ISO 37001 has the usual “high-level structure” of an ISO standard, which simplifies setting up and operating the system alongside other management systems in an organization. As a Type-A standard, ISO 37001 is approved for certification. Companies can ask to be certified by accredited third parties; thus proving that their anti-bribery management system meets the criteria of the ISO 37001 standard. However, neither appropriate certification nor basic conformity to ISO 37001 can guarantee that bribery does not occur. Instead, the certification of a management system indicates that the company has taken all appropriate and required measures to tackle the issue of bribery.
