We are pleased to inform you about new training course “Anti-bribery management system accordance to ISO 37001:2016” which we start in February 2017.
Bribery is one of the most destructive and complex problems of our times, and despite national and international efforts to combat it, it remains widespread.
The World Bank estimates that over USD 1 trillion is paid in bribes each year, with disastrous impacts such as eroding political stability, increasing the cost of business and contributing to poverty. On a global level, it is a significant barrier to international trade, while within an organization it has a highly negative impact on employee morale.
An anti-bribery management system is designed to instill an anti-bribery culture within an organization and implement appropriate controls, which will in turn increase the chance of detecting bribery and reduce its incidence in the first place.
ISO 37001, Anti-bribery management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, gives the requirements and guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an anti-bribery management system. The system can be independent of, or integrated into, an overall management system.
It covers bribery in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, including bribery by and against an organization or its staff, and bribes paid or received through or by a third party. The bribery can take place anywhere, be of any value and can involve financial or non-financial advantages or benefits.
ISO 37001 is designed to help your organization implement an anti-bribery management system or enhance the controls you currently have. It requires implementing a series of measures such as adopting an anti-bribery policy, appointing someone to oversee compliance with that policy, vetting and training employees, undertaking risk assessments on projects and business associates, implementing financial and commercial controls, and instituting reporting and investigation procedures.
During the training course, you will meet with the requirements, principles of implementation of anti-bribery management system in the organization, practical approaches to the assessment of corruption risks, examples of actions aimed at preventing and detecting corruption.
