CRI Certification: Enhance your organization’s reputation and credibility
Date: 23 Aug 2017 By:CRI Group

Bribery and corruption are serious concerns to businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations. In fact, the risk of being associated with the negative impacts of this type of fraud extends to third party partners and influences present and future businesses relationships.

In this business climate, consider the tremendous advantage your organization will enjoy if it is ISO 37001:2016 certified to prevent bribery and corruption, a designation you can proudly communicate to the public and market to potential partners. CRI Certification provides that assurance – not just to you, but to your potential partners, as well.

Due diligence as a critical business tool

When it comes to due diligence, CRI Group helps organizations thoroughly evaluate third-party partners for red flags, such as:

  • Reputational risk
  • Compliance risk
  • Operational risk
  • Business risk
  • Strategic risk
  • Credit risk
  • Country/location risk

The flip side of that coin is that organizations that are identified as ethical and maintaining a zero-tolerance approach to fraud gain immediate preference over others in their industry or field. By engaging with CRI Group, your organization can immediately see the benefits of ISO 37001:2016 certification by being established and recognized as a potential partner or provider that is ethical and effective at preventing bribery and corruption, satisfying all of the risk criteria above.

The benefits of being certified

Here are just a few of the benefits of participating in training and certification opportunities offered through CRI Certification:
