ISO 37001: A Game Changer in Global Anti-Bribery Efforts?

12.9.2016, 10:00AM to 11:30AM

The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT) co-hosted an event in celebration of International Anti-Corruption Day.

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.

CIPE and WIIT hosted a discussion on the significance of ISO 37001 in global anti-bribery efforts, focusing on these questions: Will this standard become the new international benchmark for doing business with integrity? What are its benefits and limitations?

A panel of experts addressed these questions and shared their insights.
