“The new standard provides detailed guidance as to the systems companies should have in place to prevent bribery."
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 30, 2016
The Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (CREATe.org) today releases an eBook, “Top 10 Takeaways of the ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems Standard.”
CREATe.org’s eBook provides insight into the soon-to-be-launched International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) guidance that addresses bribery through a detailed, auditable framework for organizations to use to develop or benchmark an effective anti-bribery program.
“The new standard is significant on several fronts. It provides detailed guidance as to the systems companies should have in place to prevent bribery. It is written in understandable business language and also reflects input from a diverse range of companies, roles and geographies,” stated CREATe’s Leslie Benton, a member of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to the ISO committee developing the standard.
The eBook provides an overview of the key elements of ISO 37001, the certification process and what differentiates ISO 37001 from other guidance. The standard is scheduled to be published by ISO in mid-October.
The eBook is available on CREATe’s.org along with other resources related to anti-corruption including the whitepaper: Why Anti-Corruption Programs Fail: Turning Policies into Practices; Addressing Corruption Risk Through Enterprise Risk Management (2014); an overview of international Anti-Corruption Guidelines; and a preview of the ‘Guide to Improving your Anti-Corruption Program,’ a comprehensive reference for companies participating in CREATe Leading Practices for Anti-Corruption service.
