ISO 37001 – DQS CFS successfully completes Accreditation Audit

Dr. Thijs Willaert News

Since its publication two years ago, ISO 37001, the international standard for anti-bribery management systems, has quickly established itself as a crucial tool to combat bribery-related risks. In order to ensure the lasting credibility of ISO 37001 certificates issued by DQS, we have made it a priority to apply for accreditation. We are pleased to announce that we are one of the first certification bodies in the world to have passed the accreditation audit.

When we announced in April 2018 that we had issued our first ISO 37001 certificate to Vivo Energy, this certificate turned out to be one of first in the world. With the accreditation audit now behind us, we again find ourselves in a pioneering role: only a handful of certification bodies have so far obtained accreditation for ISO 37001.  The accreditation, performed by the German Accreditation Body DAkkS, confirms the competence of DQS CFS to evaluate and certify anti-bribery management systems.

What is ISO 37001:2016?

ISO 37001:2016 is an Anti-bribery Management System (ABMS). It guides organizations to establish, implement, maintain, review and improve an ABMS to reduce and manage the risk of bribery. This is a generic standard that can be implemented in all organizations, regardless of the industry or size. It can also be easily integrated into existing management systems.
