ISO 37001:2016

Anti-bribery Management Systems


The ISO 37001 anti-bribery management system standard is an important tool for preventing and combating corruption. The ISO 37001 standard provides guidance to help organisations prevent, detect and respond to bribery. It also helps organisations to comply with anti-bribery legislation and any other voluntary commitments they may have in the area of their operations.


ISO 37001 thus provides support for the fulfilment of mandatory anti-bribery obligations and also offers all companies the opportunity to implement a management system for the long-term control of major risks and costs associated with bribery.

Target groups

Every kind of organisation is addressed, regardless of its size and nature. It is not possible to exclude certain sites or processes from the application of the standard. The certification refers to the legal entity as a whole, to all departments, subsidiaries, processes and activities actually carried out.


Three years - as part of the continuous development, surveillance audits are carried out every year and a recertification audit after three years.


The SQS-certificate ISO 37001 is nationally and internationally valid and recognised. As a leading assessment- and certification organisation for quality and management systems, SQS has employees with many years of experience and cross-sector expertise. This guarantees the high reputation and acceptance of the SQS-certificate for management systems worldwide.


ISO 37001 can be extended to an integrated management system in conjunction with ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety), ISO 50001 (energy management) and ISO 31000 (risk management). The new structure (High Level Structure, HLS) facilitates the integration of other standards and generally all ISO standards that will be revised in the future according to the HLS.
