After a successful audit in March 2018, DQS is delighted to issue the ISO 37001:2016 certificate to VIVO Energy. We would like to congratulate the entire VIVO Energy team on their successful implementation of their anti-bribery management system.
WHAT IS ISO 37001:2016?
ISO 37001:2016 standard guides organisations to establish, implement, maintain, review and improve an ABMS to reduce and manage the risk of bribery. This is a generic standard that can be implemented in all organisations, regardless of the industry or size. It can also be easily integrated into existing management systems.
WHY IS AN ABMS SO IMPORTANT?
An ABMS provides guidance to prevent bribery and take appropriate action should instances of attempted bribery occur. An implemented ABMS according to ISO 37001 can protect companies’ reputation and ensure investor and customer confidence.
VIVO ENERGY; THEIR EXPERIENCE
The audit at Vivo Energy was successfully conducted in March 2018. Ms. Mari van Wyk, responsible for the implementation of ISO 37001, describes the experience as follows: “DQS was our chosen certification partner and from the start, it was clear why they are the best. The audit team were a senior, experienced team, which shows DQS’s commitment to their clients. The team was extremely helpful and professional, which made our “daunting” audit a pleasant experience. They guided us every step of the way and were also willing to ask the hard and difficult questions. DQS assisted us with the readiness assessment, which helped us to be adequately prepared for the actual certification. In short, we were Happy as Larry with their service.”
Behzad Sadegh, the ISO 37001 product manager at DQS, was very pleased with the result of the certification audit. The anti-bribery awareness has risen significantly within the past few years. The ability to be transparent has become increasingly important for companies such as VIVO Energy. Accordingly, we are seeing a strong upsurge in the demand for ISO 37001 certification. Through value-adding assessments, we support our clients in their mission to minimize the risk of bribery from internal and external influences.
