ISO 37001 – A Global Anti Bribery Management System
With bribes estimated at 2 trillion US-Dollars paid across the globe each year, bribery is among the most destructive and challenging of issues. It is a widespread form of corruption that has a corrosive effect on society, public trust, economic development and, ultimately, quality of life.
Recognizing the consequences of failing to tackle bribery, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently published the ISO 37001 standard – a business tool specifically designed to address the issue.
ISO 37001 is intended to help an organization to implement an effective anti-bribery management system. It can be used internationally and is applicable to small, medium and large organizations in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
