Get trained and certified in establishing, managing, and auditing an ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System
With increasing globalization, firms are faced with new challenges, as well as new opportunities. Part of this new environment is compliance with laws that are anti-bribery and anti-corruption, such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act, Canada’s Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act, Russia's Federal Anti-Corruption Law No. 273, and several others in France, Germany, China, and Brazil. International development and enforcement of new ABC laws and guidelines is not an ad-hoc coincidence. As of November 2016, 41 countries have committed to implementing the recommendations and requirements of the the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. 140 Countries have committed to the United Nations' Convention against Corruption. This means that adoption and rigorous enforcement of anti-bribery and anti-corruption programs and best practices is already well-established, and is growing stronger by the day.
While organizations critically need to prove due diligence in preventing, detecting, and correcting bribery and corruption, the dilemma is that there has not been a universally-recognized standard of exactly what a sufficient ABC program would entail. Until now. As of October 2016, there is a new global standard for anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) management systems, made available by the International Organization for Standardization. With the new ISO 37001 standard, "Anti-bribery management systems - Requirements with guidance for use," it means there is now an internationally recognized set of best practices to prevent and detect bribery. Moreover, these best practices are auditable and can be ISO certified. The standard is designed for use in both public-sector and private-sector organizations. Expect to see early widespread international adoption by the public sector, which will subsequently drive private-sector organizations wanting to do business with them to become certified to the same standard. Even if your organization already has an ABC program, it should immediately perform an audit against the new ISO 37001 standard to ensure that all details are addressed and compliant. After all, ISO 37001 will likely determine the minimum of what your organization's customers, regulators, and suppliers will expect of your program.
