ISO 37301 – Certification of Compliance Management Systems
If your organization 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 & regulations in a systematic, structured and pro-active manner.
The ISO 37301 standard serves as a guideline for organizations that wish to implement a compliance management system (CMS), or those who seek to benchmark their existing system against international best practices.
Certification of your compliance management system by an independent third-party such as DQS not only provides assurance to your stakeholders, it also enables organizations to detect potential for improvement and to further increase the effectiveness of their CMS.
The Benefits of ISO 37301 Certification
- Implementing the measures of the standard reduces the risk of malpractice.
- Third-party confirmation of your CMS greatly enhances trust between business partners and provides assurance that risks associated with laws and regulations are managed appropriately.
- Implementation and certification can be used as evidence of due diligence in case of disputes
- The ISO 37301 standard follows the same structure as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 and can easily be integrated into existing management systems.
- During the certification audit, our auditors detect potential for improvement and make recommendations to increase the effectiveness of your compliance management system.
The certification process – how it works
Together we organise an appointment for the audit. The audit duration depends on the size of your organisation. After the successful completion of the certification audit, you will receive a certificate which is valid for three years. To maintain your certification, annual surveillance audits are required.
