Anticorruption | ISO 37001

The ISO 37001 standard definies the requirements of the Anti-Corruption Management System, in order to support pubblic and private organizations in combating and preventing corruption, and to spread a culture based on ethics and good conduct. 

In addition to the implementation of a series on measures and controls that represent globally recognised good practices in the field of anti-corruption, the main requirements of the standard will be: 

  • The documented definition of its anti-corruption policy, the analysis of the context, the factors, the determination of the sources of corruption; 
  • Commitment of leadership with pledge and responsibility to anti-corruption, supervision by senior management; 
  • Risk assessment: identification of levels and impacts, measurement, control and verification of effectiveness of measures taken; 
  • Reporting, monitoring, analysis and review; 
  • Continuous improvement actions (prevention) and, if necessary, correction. 

The new ISO 37001 standard will use the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) methodology. 

Like the other standards issued or revised by the ISO since (e.g..., the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001, ISO 27001:2013, ISO 22301:2012, ISO 19600:2014) the norm ISO 37001 will also be based on the HLS (High Level Structure) structure. 

The latter has been delined and made mandatory by the ISO, to facilitate integration between Management System: in doing so, each standard will require the application of its specific requirements, while being built through terminologies and structures common to other ISO standards. 

Through certification by an independent third party-body, the company provides credibility of its commitments to its customers and stakeholders.
