International Certification Body in ISO Standards

ISO 37001:2016

WHAT IS ISO 37001?

ISO 37001:2016 is an international standard that contributes to the fight against bribery, through the implementation and certification of Anti-Bribery Management Systems in companies, following a line of commitment by introducing an organizational culture focused on three values, Integrity, Honesty and Transparency.

The central axes of ISO 37001 are:

  • Leadership
  • Risk assessment
  • Continuous improvement
  • Transparency
  • Ethics

Bribery is one of the main problems of healthy competition, and can harm the development of a country, so this certification it’s ideal to establish controls, prevent and detect risks that may cause non-compliance with legal and ethical obligations for every employee in your company.

ISO 37001


ISO created this standard to support companies with a framework in conjunction with the existing laws of each government to combat bribery and the precariousness it causes. Having an Anti-Bribery Management System in place will provide you with a number of advantages including the following:

  • You will comply with local and international legal obligations
  • Provide confidence to your employees and customers
  • Enhance your company’s reputation
  • Establish best practices
  • Mitigate costs and risks
  • Avoid moral damages

Every day more and more clients are concerned about establishing business relationships with companies and organizations that manage their risks and work under an anti-bribery policy. With this standard, in addition to the aforementioned benefits, you will also have a great advantage over your competitors, as your company will be distinguished by having an internationally certified system for the prevention of bribery.

Although the main objective of ISO 37001 is to prevent acts of bribery within your company, it also supports its proper functioning, giving way to business growth and development; in addition, it guides you to take proactive actions to eradicate corruption.
