One of the most challenging corporate and societal dysfunctions, corruption/bribery, is now subject of another PDCA-based, HLS-compliant ISO MSS: ISO 37001:2016 Anti-bribery management systems -- Requirements with guidance for use

Corruption has brought devastating consequences to Brazil, it's economy suffering hugely from massive corruption scandals being scrutinized via the Lava Jato investigation.

Almost 5 years ago, I was interviewed about corruption in Brazil. Things have only gotten worse down there, since then.

In my opinion, if there is to be an accredited certification scheme for this standard, we should avoid the traditional IAF based approach and create a totally new accredited audit and certification process with a credible and relevant anti-corruption stakeholder overseeing the whole process. An entity such as Transparency International. An ISO 17021-based accredited certification process is not robust nor smart enough to provide confidence in this field. This issue is too important and critical not to be taken seriously by corporations and governments the World over.

Come October 2017, ISO 37001:2016 will be celebrating its first anniversary of its publication. The Indonesian President, Jokowi, has issued a Presidential Instruction requesting government agencies to adopt and implement this Standard as one of their Action Plans to fight and curbing corruption in Indonesia.

The damage inflicted by corruption, worldwide, is immense. In the corporate world, the COMPLIANCE buzzword has been crafted and together with GOVERNANCE indicates that the organization is attempting to be proactive in preventing illicit acts.

But, just like in the case of quality management, a department does not ensure the system is embraced organization-wide.

But, as I said before, if ISO 37001 is to make a real impact onto the business world, I don't believe the current accreditation chain is the most adequate channel for that.

Who knows? We might soon see the height of irony when pseudo-accredited and non-accredited ISO 37001 certificates are sold aquired earned online.

One Italian Oil & Gas company has been certified to ISO 37001 in Jan 2017. Just as the celebration of achieving certification has settled down, it was rumored that corruption scandal has also blown up in with fury! How ironic but the company denied any wrong doing.

I have no idea what you are referring to, but - Bribery is a human trait. No laws will ever stop it any more than drug prohibition has worked. Bribery and corruption are human traits. No laws will ever stop either any more than drug prohibition has worked.

I have no idea what you are referring to,
He is referring to the ENI case mentioned in the media, a biased article can be accessed here. What the author of the article fails to realize (or to report) is the fact that the alleged violation happened in 2011. Organizations, just like individuals, mature over time. What is an organization to do, if they realize that they have to strengthen their anti-corruption policies and internal enforcement of compliance ? Wouldn't the re-engineering of your business management system to ensure there are processes in place to prevent corruption be an appropriate thing to do? That is EXACTLY what implementing ISO 37001 should accomplish; obviously, if well and seriously executed and not just for show.

But cases like that will always be (mis) used by detractors of the management system certification sector.

Thanks Sidney for starting this thread.

My company have been looking at how to effectively achieve certification to the standard as it supports our obligations under the UK Bribery Act.

I agree wholeheartedly that the use of an external oversight body would make sense and TI certainly fit the bill for this.

Not sure what it is like in the US, but in the UK it appears that UKAS are working through their program, with CBs not expected to be in place until Summer 2018 at the earliest - and then there will only be four bodies making the certification available.

If anyone has any information available regarding the progress I would be very glad to hear about it, as our clients are starting to make noises about it being a mandatory requirement for their supply chain, but with no infrastructure in place it will be very challenging.

Thanks for any information that comes back.

From UKAS : Accreditation for Certification of Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ISO 37001:2016)

Accreditation Bodies find themselves now in the situation that they have to understand the potential market interest before they decide to launch an accreditation scheme...

There are more than forty-five ISO 37001 certified organizations worldwide. While UKAS has yet to accreditate any CB but several other Accreditation Bodies have done so. In Indonesia, local KAN has accredited 2 local CBs and they have certified 4 organizations including 3 government agencies. While there are 11 certified organizations in Malaysia but they are certified by a non-accredited CB.
The first ISO 37001 certified organization in China is CIMC-Tianda Airport Support Ltd certified by Shenzhen Institute of Standards and Technology.

By the way, Transparency International (TI) is one of the stakeholders in design and development of this iSO 37001 standard.
