Our Virtual Classroom Introduction to ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System will provide details, along withh terms, definitions, and key requirements of the standard, as explained by Bureau Veritas lead auditor and training instructor Mr. Arshad Hashmi.
Corruption is a serious threat to any organization. Recent conventions by the United Nations and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development aim at cracking down on bribery offences.
As a result, 41 countries have established laws anti-bribery laws; these include the US’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK’s 2010 Bribery Act, both of which have transnational reach. Not only will organizations whose representatives are found giving or receiving bribes be subject to hefty financial penalties, but directors themselves also risk personal criminal or civil liability.
The wide-reaching scope of this new legislation is driving a move to formalize management systems to ensure compliance.
