Get introduced to ISO 37301 requirements for a compliance management system with ISO 37301 LEAD AUDITOR course.

Being an ISO 37301 certified professional allows you to help your organisation continuously meet compliance obligations. 

The internationally accepted ISO 37301:2021 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). ISO 37301:2021 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. The standard provides 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 on 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. Our experts are willing to assist you in the process of obtaining an ISO 37301 credential and developing your career skills.
