ISO 37001:2016 Anti-bribery Management Systems

ISO 37001 is an anti-bribery management systems standard published in October 2016.  It is designed to help an organization establish, implement, maintain, and improve an anti-bribery compliance programme.  It includes a series of measures and controls that represent global anti-bribery good practice.
ISO 37001 is based on a four-step model and aligned with the ISO 19600 standard for Compliance Management Systems:

  • Plan: identify anti-bribery obligations and evaluate compliance risks in order to develop a strategy, including measures to address any issues

  • Do: implement measures and establish mechanisms to monitor their effectiveness

  • Check: review the anti-bribery management program on the basis of the controls implemented

  • Act: review and improve the program continually, ensuring cases of noncompliance are monitored and examined


Requirements of ISO 37001:2016

The organization must implement a series of measures and controls in a reasonable and proportionate manner to help prevent, detect, and deal with bribery, including:

  • Anti-bribery policy

  • Risk assessments

  • Due diligence on projects and business associates

  • Financial, commercial and contractual controls
