ISO 37001 Anti-bribery management system certification

  • Certification demonstrates that an organisation has implemented an antibribery management system

  • Company receives an “ISO 37001 Certificate” from ETHIC Intelligence

  • ISO 37001 is the latest global standard in anti-bribery compliance

  • Can be applied or extended to any compliance system e.g. money laundering, data privacy, fraud and anti-bribery

  • Company receives an “ISO 19600 Audit Certificate” from ETHIC Intelligence and a detailed report and gap analysis of the compliance system under review

  • Because ISO 19600 audit guidelines are similar to ISO 37001 requirements, an organisation may wish to start with the ISO 19600 audit to optimise its chances of achieving an ISO 37001 certification

ISO 19600 Compliance management system audit

ETHIC Intelligence anticorruption compliance programme certificate

  • Ensures that an organisation’s anti-corruption compliance programme meets all legal requirements

  • Company receives an “Anti-Corruption Compliance Programme Certificate” and a detailed report of its anti-corruption compliance system

Any of the certification solutions can include an add-on of three opinion letters from three international lawyers to provide a legal appraisal of the auditor’s report.

How does The Red Flag Group maintain impartiality with ETHIC Intelligence?

ETHIC Intelligence maintains impartiality in certification decisions as ETHIC Intelligence remains an independent company even within The Red Flag Group. ETHIC Intelligence also has an Impartiality Committee with external stakeholders to assess such risks. Furthermore, a disclosure of absence of conflict of interest is signed with every auditor and clients prior to any audit. We also have an alert line to disclose any unidentified conflict of interest and we therefore comply with ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 requirements 4.2, 4.8, 5.2 and 6.1.3.

The Red Flag Group will continue to provide solutions for clients to equip their compliance programmes, but will not provide specific services in order to ensure successful certification under ETHIC Intelligence

The Red Flag Group’s board, management team and staff consist of lawyers and governance experts who understand the issues around governance obligations around conflicts of interests. Our solutions will continue to equip clients with specific aspects of their compliance programmes with respect to third party integrity via data, intelligence and software, however the use of our services will not be a method to ensure successful certification under ETHIC Intelligence. The certification process remains an independent service separate to The Red Flag Group’s set of solutions.
