    ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System

    An Anti-bribery Management System is a standard that assists organisations to implement Governance Controls. It allows Private and Public Sectors to earn the confidence of their stakeholders and shareholders through the assurance of effectively managed governance frameworks that have been benchmarked to best practice standards.

    Ethics, Conflicts of Interest, Nepotism, Irregular Expenditure, and various other legal recourses in an organisation are reviewed to ensure an effective management system that organisations can trust. In South Africa, the Anti-Bribery Management System is closely aligned to King 4 best practices.
