ISO 37002:2021 Whistleblower Management System ABAC is now offering training on ISO 37002

ISO 37002:2021

Improve your organisation’s culture with whistleblowing training!

ISO 37002 provides guidance for organisations to create a whistleblowing management system based on trust, impartiality and protection. ISO 37002 will make it easier for organisations to understand that establishing an effective whistleblowing programme isn’t an onerous task and will also remove organisational excuses for not doing it. Having this new global standard will pave the way for how organisations can run effective whistleblower programs.

What is ISO 37002 and why is it important?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed a new guidelines for whistleblowing management systems — ISO 37002.  ISO37002 provides guidelines for implementing, managing, evaluating, maintaining and improving a robust and effective whistleblowing management system. But what does it mean in practice and how can it improve and add value to an organisation’s existing whistleblowing programme?

ABAC is now offering training on ISO 37002. The aim of the course is to improve the culture in every organisation so that employees feel comfortable whistleblowing where necessary. In order to enhance the learning experience, the course contains real-life scenarios where whistleblowing has helped prevent disaster and examples where whistleblowing could have helped prevent disasters.

iso 37301 compliance

ISO 37301:2021 CMS

ISO 37301 replaces ISO 19600, are you ready?

The new standard replaces the ISO 19600 and can be certified directly as a Type A standard. ISO 37301 describes requirements for an effective compliance management system. As a guideline and basic standard, it gives clear directives for companies regardless of size. Check the training courses below and find the one that suits you best. Enhance your knowledge and advance your career by participating in our ABAC® ISO 37301 training courses.

What is ISO 37301 and why is it important?

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 decision

AML Training

Anti-money laundering Course with ABAC®

Our CPD-accredited Anti-Money Laundering (AML) training course is designed to raise your employees’ awareness of money laundering in order to confidently identify and report signs of money laundering activity in your business.

What is AML and why is it important?

AML Training. As a global business entity with a range of subsidiary partner operations that cross several distinct business sectors (including but not limited to telecommunication, financial services, petrochemicals, energy production/ distribution, chemicals, fertilisers and food), your organisation needs to recognise that it is targeted by hostile entities seeking to take advantage of your market presence.

One of the key challenges is corporate finance’s control and movement and the need to ensure that effective Anti-Money Laundering (AML Framework) procedures and practices are in place. Refusal to accept the risks and your organisation is openly exposed to:

  • corporate fraud;
  • corruption;
  • exploitation from the theft of money and other assets.

REGISTER NOW

A practical, introductory-level course that will give you a solid understanding of core money laundering and terrorist financing risks.  Suitable for operational or front-line staff as well as those considering embarking on a new career in AML as a stepping-stone for study at a higher level. This ABAC course is CPD accredited.

Who should attend?

  • Staff with specific anti money laundering duties
  • All staff working in financial services who want an introduction to anti money laundering
  • Anyone who aspires to a career in anti money laundering or fraud prevention

REGISTER NOW

Why should you pursue a training in AML?

You need to comply with national, regional, and international legislative frameworks such as:

  • Section 453 of the 2017 Companies Act (Pakistan); and
  • UK’s Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2000).

More fundamentally, money that is unknowingly, unwittingly or (in the case of fraud and corruption) even consciously ‘laundered’ through the organisation could ultimately support, finance and promote international terrorism and the drugs trade. An effective AML framework is a testament to your organisation position against crime. As global corporate citizens aware of their responsibilities, any international organisation must comprehensively address these concerns and implement policies, procedures, and associated risk assessment mechanisms.

To have insufficient controls and be charged with engaging in money laundering can have any of the following negative consequences:

  • Damaged corporate reputations & brand devaluation
  • Eroding employee morale
  • Potential consumer boycotts
  • Negative investor perceptions
  • Possible legal action
  • Fines & potential jail terms for directors

Looking for ISO Certification? 

ISO certification is a seal of approval from a third party body that a company runs to one of the international standards developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO certification shows your key stakeholders that you have a well-run business that has structure, is stable and ready for growth.

WHY GET CERTIFIED TO ISO STANDARDS?

Certification to ISO standards or British standards demonstrates that your organisation works to international or national best practice, demonstrating your credibility and competence to stakeholders and customers. Certifications are legally obligated in some industries, while in other industries they are often included in tender requirements. The guidelines set forth by the standards are applicable to all types and sizes of organisations and aren’t restricted by industry, risk exposure or geographic reach.

ISO stands for International Organisation for Standardisation, whose standards address basic requirements that should be documented and followed rigorously within the scope of the company. These systems can be for quality, environment, safety, or any other aspects of a company. ISO has developed and published more than 23,528 International Standards. When a company implement these systems and applies for certification through an ISO certification body, it needs to clear a surveillance audit as well as a certification audit. The certification body audits the company’s system and for adherence for bare minimum requirements mentioned in ISO. On successful completion of an audit, the organisation is ISO certified by the certification body. This cycle is repeated every three years to ensure the effectiveness of the system, 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, and ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ABMS). 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.

ISO 37001:2016 ANTI-BRIBERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ISO has developed a standard – ISO 37001:2016 ABMS – to help organisations promote an ethical business culture. “Designed to help your organisation implement an anti-bribery management system (ABMS), and/or enhance the controls you currently have. It helps to reduce the risk of bribery [and corruption] occurring and can demonstrate to your stakeholders that you have put in place internationally recognised good-practice anti-bribery [and anti-corruption] controls”.

This new standard mirrors numerous steps contained in the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (DOJ and SEC) and Good Practice Guidance on Internal Controls, Ethics and Compliance (OECD), Anti-Corruption Ethics and Compliance Handbook for Business (OECD), UK Bribery Act 2010 and the British Ministry of Justice’s Adequate Procedures document. ISO 37001 ABMS Standard is flexible and can be adapted to manage many types of bribery in addition to suiting any type of business locally or worldwide.

ISO 37001 certifies that your organisation has implemented reasonable and proportionate measures to prevent bribery. These measures involve top-level leadership, training, bribery risk assessment, due diligence adequacy, financial and commercial controls, reporting, audit, and investigation.

Make a step to protect your organisation from bribery and corruption risks – apply for the ISO 37001 certification today.

ISO 37002:2021 WHISTLEBLOWING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ISO has developed a new standard – ISO 37002. This all-new whistleblowing management system standard seeks to address and provide guidance on effective, internal whistleblowing management in organisations of all sizes. While many countries and individual organisations have standards of their own, ISO 37002 provides a unified standard of effectiveness and efficacy of these systems.

The scope of the ISO 37002 standard is on handling reports. It asks a series of questions including:

  • What does a good system look like?
  • How do you design it?
  • What do you need to do or need to know?
  • What are the key characteristics?
  • It also asks how you support that kind of system: What do people at the board level need to do? What does the executive team need to do/know? What are the key characteristics?

Make a step to protect your organisation from bribery and corruption risks – apply for the ISO 37002 certification today.

ISO 37301:2021 COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ISO 37301 sets out the expectations and responsibilities for those in the governing body (i.e. board of directors) and top management (i.e. C-suite roles) of an organisation. The standard makes it clear that both groups bear the primary responsibility for compliance management.

Good corporate governance begins at the top, with a strong leadership desire to demonstrate a commitment to compliance by providing resources, management and oversight of the compliance management system. It requires providing a clear and documented compliance policy that states their commitment to compliance and to continual improvement. In addition to senior management groups, guidance is provided as to the roles of middle- and lower-level management in supporting compliance in their general day-to-day activities – all employees are required to play their part.

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. The guidelines set forth in the internationally accepted ISO 37301:2021 Compliance Management Systems represent the first step in developing a framework that protects the organisation from falling victim.

The first step in demonstrating your and/or your organisation’s commitment to implementing an effective compliance management system is to commit to ISO 37301 certification. At ABAC®, our program 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.
