An anti-bribery management system can help organizations prevent, detect and address bribery. It helps to reduce the risk of bribery occurring and can demonstrate to clients and stakeholders that an organization has put in place internationally recognized good-practice anti-bribery controls.
Scope of accreditation
The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) accredits certification bodies that assess and certify anti-bribery management systems to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard ISO 37001 – Anti-bribery management systems.
Benefits of SCC accreditation
SCC accreditation demonstrates an organization’s competence to manage and perform activities defined by its specific program scope of accreditation. Through SCC accreditation, certification bodies are able to obtain independent, third-party, credible test results for themselves and for their customers.
SCC accreditation helps certification bodies deliver services with confidence and attract new customers. As SCC is a signatory member to several international mutual recognition and multilateral agreements, SCC’s Accreditation Program is internationally recognized.
SCC’s Criteria and Procedures page highlights each international standard and other documents whose requirements must be met for a particular accreditation program.
