Anti-bribery and corruption - 1134 x 300

If corruption were an industry, it would be the third biggest in the world. The cost of corruption globally is estimated to be equivalent to 10% of all Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) made, which equates to a loss of $126 billion in 2014. The growth of extra-territorial legislation to tackle this issue also increases the risk for organizations operating in a global and complex environment.

We offer services according to leading global standards for anti-bribery and corruption including certification of anti-bribery management systems (ABMS).

We can help you with;

  • BS 10500 certification.
  • Ethical Intelligence certification
  • Training

We certify according to the two internationally recognized standards;

  • BS 10500
  • Ethic Intelligence
BS 10500 builds on the requirements set out in the UK Bribery Act (UKBA). Ethic Intelligence covers BS 10500 in addition to the requirements of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and local legal requirements in relevant markets where your business operates. DNV GL is part of the working group developing the new international anti-bribery management system standard ISO 37001, to be launched in late 2016. Both the BS 10500 and the Ethic Intelligence standards focus on policy and management systems. Auditing is conducted based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) and can be combined with auditing of other management system certifications, such as ISO9001 and ISO14001.

Certification can provide assurance that

  • A corporate policy corresponds to relevant needs and risks
  • Adequate and proportionate procedures are in place to actively prevent bribery and corruption
  • There are necessary controls in place both in your own organization and across your entire value chain
  • Your organization engages with and can meet requirements set by your stakeholders
