Certification to ISO standards or British standards demonstrates that your organisation works to international or national best practices, demonstrating your credibility and competence to stakeholders and customers. Certifications are legally obligated in some industries, while they are often included in tender requirements in other industries. The guidelines set forth by the standards apply to all types and sizes of organisations and aren’t restricted by industry, risk exposure or geographic reach. When a company implements these systems and applies for Certification through an ISO certification body, it needs to clear a surveillance audit and a certification audit. The certification body audits the company’s system and adherence to bare minimum requirements mentioned in ISO. The organisation is ISO certified by the certification body on completing an audit. This cycle is repeated every three years to ensure the system’s effectiveness, along with a surveillance audit every year. At ABAC®, we can provide you with training and Certification for ISO 37301 Compliance Management System, ISO 37002 Whistleblowing Management System, ISO 31000 Risk Management, ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ABMS) and the new ISO 37000 Governance of Organisations. ABAC® works with clients of all industries, sizes and organisation types to develop robust programs using the latest techniques and best practices that help foster an ethical business culture.
