Companies choose to obtain certification of their anti-corruption compliance programs for various reasons, depending on their business strategy. Some wish to gain internal support for compliance programs whilst others want to send a clear message to external audiences that their way of conducting business is more secure than that of their competitors.
The ISO 37001 standard reflects international good practices on anti-corruption compliance and allows organizations to demonstrate to their employees, stakeholders, business associates and third parties their commitment to do business with integrity. An ISO 37001 certification offers assurance that the organization has implemented an anti-corruption compliance program properly.
Based on the principles of good governance, proportionality, transparency and sustainability, the ISO 19600 standard allows Chief Compliance Officers to build or to benchmark their compliance program. It can be adopted as a stand-alone guidance or even combined with another management system standard such as ISO 37001.
The ETHIC Intelligence Certification Committee is composed of internationally-recognized experts in the field of anti-corruption. Committee members study certification files in detail and decide whether to award or deny certification.
The Excellence in Compliance club is intended to acknowledge and reward companies that have invested in and committed to reaching the highest international best practices standards via ETHIC Intelligence certification.
