Is your company in line with international regulations*?
SO MANY LAWS AND REGULATIONS. SO FEW RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE. To stifle the spread of corruption at a global level, the world’s governing bodies have woven together with a complex and ever-expanding web of laws, regulations and standards. And these significantly impact on how multi-national organisations conduct business.
If your business isn’t meeting the myriad obligations established by government bodies worldwide, the exposure to risk can grow exponentially as each day passes. Good corporate governance begins at the top, with a strong leadership desire to demonstrate that your organisation is taking every available step to prevent bribery and corruption. The challenge comes in interpreting and complying with the many various laws, standards, codes and rules which companies face at a local, regional, and national level. Because of these challenges, you must develop a robust internal system to safeguard your organisation from the internal and external risks associated with bribery and corruption.
The guidelines set forth in the internationally accepted ISO 19600:2014 Compliance Management Systems represent the first step in developing a framework that protects the organisation from falling victim to the many risks associated with corporate bribery and/or corruption. ABAC® is designed to assist in developing processes and systems that help your organisation to effectively manage compliance risks and foster a system-wide culture of business integrity. Comply with confidence with ISO 19600!

Ensure good governance & transparency with ISO 19600
ISO 19600 is a widely-accepted standard that provides guidance for establishing, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining and improving an organisation’s compliance management program. It covers all compliance-related issues including anti-trust, fraud, misconduct, export control, anti-money laundering, and other unexpected risks which might affect your business.
The standard acts as a global benchmark for effective and responsive compliance management program, based on the good governance and transparency principles. The guidelines set forth by the standard are applicable to all types and sizes of organisations and aren’t restricted by industry, risk exposure or geographic reach.
