Anti-corruption management ISO 37001

What is behind anti-corruption management?

In October 2016, the ISO organization adopted the ISO 37001 standard, on the basis of which companies can implement an anti-corruption management system. The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) makes it clear why this is so important. It is the world’s best-known corruption indicator, which is compiled by the International Secretariat of Transparency International. It currently ranks 180 countries according to the degree of perceived corruption in politics and administration. The scale ranges from 0 (high level of perceived corruption) to 100 (no perceived corruption). More than two thirds of the countries surveyed have a score of less than 50, with the average being just 43 points.

For all organizations that want to be successful and reputable, proper business procedures should be an important part of the corporate philosophy and compliance standards. This allows you to strengthen the trust of your business partners, the public and consumers and thus improve your image. ISO 37001 certification implies a company’s commitment to the fight against bribery and corruption and therefore represents a competitive advantage.

The standard primarily relates to the area of bribery. As a nationally and internationally recognized standard for the anti-corruption management system, it describes requirements for a uniform understanding and corresponding guidelines for the development, introduction, maintenance and continuous optimization of an anti-corruption management system. It specifies a series of measures and controls that organizations of all kinds should introduce in order to prevent bribery and corruption, detect it at an early stage or deal with it efficiently.
