In October 2016, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published a new standard on anti-corruption management systems, ISO 37001. Designed with the participation of business and other stakeholders, and written in plain language, the standard is meant to be widely applicable to businesses of different sizes as well as public sector entities and non-profits. Importantly, ISO 37001 will also offer the opportunity for external certification.
In celebration of the International Anti-Corruption Day, CIPE and the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT) invite you to a discussion on the significance of ISO 37001 in global anti-bribery efforts. Will this standard become the new international benchmark for doing business with integrity? What are its benefits and limitations? A panel of experts will address these questions and share their insights.
