ISO 37001


ISO 37001 – Anti-Bribery Management System

The Anti-Bribery Management System will establish a status of incorruptibility for the organization. Any organization which adopts an Anti-Bribery Management System, is required to demonstrate: management's leadership, Anti-Bribery policy, and must nominate a dedicated function for this purpose. The organization should create a method of detecting bribery risk, to decrease the risk and to preform due diligence for its transactions, as well as, for its employees.
The standard is based on the HLS, and can be incorporated with other certified management standards.
Bribery is a very common phenomenon. Giving and receiving bribes, shatters the foundation of the organization.
Head of states, mayors, judges, ministers, doctors, engineers in public companies, celebrities, and even policemen, have been suspected and convicted in/of giving and receiving bribes in the past several years, here in Israel.
Bribery was a "national calamity" even in ancient days, mentioned in the Bible in Deuteronomy [27', 25']: "Cursed is taking a bribe to strike innocent blood soul ...".
Laws and programs for Anti-Bribery exist, however, organizations must take responsibility. Organizations which export military equipment, are already required to present the Ministry of Defense with an Anti-Bribery program. This demand stems from Israel's agreement with the OECD.

Advantages of the Anti-Bribery Management System:

  • Reduced transaction costs.
  • Reducing liability by an internationally recognized Anti-Bribery array.
  • Enhancement of in-house awareness to Anti-Bribery and management standpoint in the matter.
  • Compliance with international requirements.

The Standard requires the organization to:
Determine the policy, demonstrate leadership and commitment of management, train employees and managers, perform risk assessments, perform due diligence, create commercial and financial controls, establish the methods of inspection and method of handling of non-conformities and corrective actions needed as a result.
The path to certification
Certification for the ISO 37001 is granted after the standard requirements are successfully implemented. The Anti-Bribery Management System is assessed by professional, independent SII auditors.
It is recommended to purchase the standard, study the requirements, attend appropriate training and refer to the process as an opportunity for improvement.
On the path to certification a major advantage is harnessing of employees, management and the governing body of the organization to the process.
