Introduction to ISO 37001:2016
ISO 37001:2016 is applicable only to bribery. It sets out requirements and provides guidance for a management system designed to help an organization to prevent, detect and respond to bribery and comply with anti-bribery laws and voluntary commitments applicable to its activities.
ISO 37001:2016 does not specifically address fraud, cartels and other anti-trust/competition offences, money-laundering or other activities related to corrupt practices, although an organization can choose to extend the scope of the management system to include such activities.
The requirements of ISO 37001:2016 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations (or parts of an organization), regardless of type, size and nature of activity, and whether in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors. The extent of application of these requirements depends on the factors specified in 4.1, 4.2 and 4.5.
ISO 37001:2016 certification demonstrates your dedication to implementing and maintaining a compliant and effective anti-bribery management system in support of overarching principled business practices. The ISO 37001:2016 international standard can be applied to distinguish and protect a wide range of organizations of all sizes in both public and private sectors around the world.
An anti-bribery management system is an essential component of a successful organization. Implementing an ISO 37001:2016 anti-bribery management system can demonstrate that an organization has put reasonable and proportionate measures to prevent bribery in place.
The ISO 37001:2016 - Certified Lead Auditor Certification has no prerequisites but we recommend that delegates have an understanding of how their organization operates and the risk assessment approach currently used by their organizations (should one exist).
This Certification is valuable to learners planning to complete other anti-bribery management system-based training courses, such as the anti-bribery management system auditor/lead auditor, or internal auditor course, and should be useful as an introduction for anyone involved in the development, implementation, and management of an anti-bribery management system.
