Last week the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released ISO 37001 anti-bribery management systems – requirements with guidance for use. (See here for ISO’s release and here for a summary document. To obtain the actual document you have to pay for it which I regret that I did).
One’s view of ISO 37001 likely depends on one’s background, experience and motivation.
If you are familiar with the numerous sources of best practices in the anti-bribery space, then ISO 37001 is a complete yawner, indeed a disappointment as several best practices are not even captured in the purported best practices document.
If you are not familiar with the numerous sources of best practices in the anti-bribery space, and/or you are seeking to market your compliance practice, then ISO 37001 is probably a big deal.
