Looking for ISO 37301 Compliance Management Systems training?

ISO 37301 is a Type A management system standard that sets out the requirements and provides guidelines for establishing, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining, and continually improving a compliance management system (CMS). A CMS offers organisations with a structured approach to meet all compliance obligations, i.e., requirements that they mandatorily have to comply with such as laws, regulations, court rulings, permits, licenses, as well as those that they voluntarily choose to comply with such as internal policies and procedures, codes of conduct, standards, and agreements with communities or NGOs. 

ISO 37301 can be applied to all organisations, regardless of the activity’s size, nature, or complexity. CMS is based upon the principles of integrity, good governance, proportionality, transparency, accountability, and sustainability. ABAC®, powered by CRI Group, is designed to assist in developing processes and systems that help your organisation effectively manage compliance risks and foster a system-wide culture of business integrity. Comply with confidence with ISO 37301!

As with most management system standards, ISO 37301 also follows the high-level structure (HLS) developed by ISO. The HLS structure defines the common terminology and definitions used and the clause sequence (1 to 10), where the requirements for the CMS are set out in clauses 4 to 10. The HLS enables organisations to integrate various management systems, meaning that organisations can either adopt a CMS as a stand-alone management system or integrate it with other existing management systems.

Didn’t ISO already publish a standard on compliance management systems?

Yes, in 2014, ISO 19600 Compliance management systems — Guidelines was published. The main difference between these two standards is that organisations can get certified against ISO 37301 by undergoing a conformity assessment via an independent third party.

Nevertheless, ISO 37301 builds and expands upon its predecessor (ISO 19600), and organisations that established a CMS based on the guidelines of ISO 19600 already have a head start in complying with the requirements of ISO 37301.

Why is ISO 37301 important for organisations?

For organisations seeking growth and long-term success, consistently adhering to compliance obligations is a must, not an option. A CMS based on the requirements and guidance of ISO 37301 equips organisations with a set of tools (policies, processes, and controls) that allows them to establish and maintain a culture of compliance.

Organisations with a CMS based on ISO 37301 commit to sound norms of corporate governance, good practices, and ethical conduct. However, the CMS cannot eliminate the risk of non-compliance. In this regard, ISO 37301’s requirements and guidance improve the organisation’s ability to identify and respond to non-compliance. In some jurisdictions, the existence of a CMS can be an indicator of the organisation’s due diligence and commitment to compliance which may be useful in limiting legal liability and lowering penalties for infringements of relevant laws.

ISO 37301 includes requirements that address competence, communication, and awareness. By complying with these requirements, organisations ensure that the top management’s vision is translated and embedded into the conduct of managers and employees. ISO 37301 also requires and encourages the establishment of concise and effective policies, procedures, and controls that set organisations on a path toward a compliance culture and high ethical and integrity standards.

ISO 37301 outlines the quest toward compliance, setting the tone at the organisation’s top. The organisation’s governing body and top management’s commitment toward a good compliance culture is articulated through a compliance policy and the setting of compliance objectives at various levels. In addition, the governing body and top management are also required to show leadership and commitment by providing the necessary resources, establishing a compliance function, defining the roles and responsibilities and so on. Above all, the governing body and top management should actively and visibly demonstrate their commitment to the CMS through their actions and decisions.
