ISO 37001:2016; brand new standard aims to help organisations fight bribery

Date: 14 November 2016

ISO 37001:2016 (Anti-bribery management systems -- Requirements with guidance for use) was recently published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) with the aim of helping organisations combat bribery and promote an ethical business culture.  

Work on the new standard began in 2013, and following a rigorous review process involving committee representatives from 45 countries and 7 liaison organisations, ISO 37001:2016 was published on 14 October 2016.

Whilst a certification against ISO 37001:2016 does not guarantee that an organisation will remain free from bribery, the standard specifies a series of measures that serve as a framework for organisations to subsequently implement controls that enhance their ability to prevent, detect, and address bribery risk.

Having ISO 37001:2016 certification also demonstrates to key stakeholders and potential clients that an organisation is committed to internationally recognised anti-bribery practices not only within its own operations, but also with its dealings across its global value chain.

Based on the High-Level Structure, Annex SL, ISO 37001:2016 is easily integrated into other existing management systems such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.  Additionally, the requirements of ISO 37001:2016 are generic and applicable to organisations of all types, locations, and sizes.  Therefore, organisations that have already invested in anti-bribery controls will likely find that embedding the standard’s requirements will enhance existing practices.
