CMS Certification

ISO 37301 is a Type A standard and – unlike its predecessor ISO 19600 – is certifiable. That being said, 90% of the new standard is based on ISO 19600:2014. Companies that have previously aligned themselves to this one will not need to make radical changes. And organisations can have their compliance management system verified through an independent third party in the future. If your organisation performs regular risk assessments, you have probably noticed that corporate compliance consistently ranks as one of the most significant risks. The implementation and certification of a robust compliance program can help you maintain integrity and ensure compliance with all applicable rules and regulations in a systematic, structured and proactive manner.

CMS Certification is a component of the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABAC®) Centre of Excellence. CMS helps organisations to comply with the legislation that is applicable to them and with the commitments assumed by their stakeholders. They reduce the economic or reputational risks of failing to comply with them and are a fundamental tool for organisations to comply with their corporate social responsibility policies. They undoubtedly help to create a culture of integrity and compliance that fosters sustained success and the survival of the organisation. At the surface, organisations that implement ISO 37301 demonstrate a commitment to company-wide good governance and ethical practices, two core principles that contribute to any business’s overall economic success. But the benefits of implementation go much deeper and include:

  • Safeguarding the organisation’s overall reputation
  • Verifying the existence of an effective compliance management system
  • Reducing the risk of prosecution in legal proceedings
  • Strengthening the organisation’s position in international business deals

Additionally, courts in several jurisdictions have previously taken into consideration an organisation’s overall commitment to compliance when determining penalties in corruption-related legal cases. An effective compliance management system provides proof of the organisation’s integrity levels and business values.
