CRI Group organized a networking session on Compliance and Anti-Bribery Management System
Date: 15 Mar 2018 By:CRI Group

The past decade has seen a dramatic rise in the prosecution of organizations accused in bribery schemes. FCPA, UK -Bribery Act, French Sapin II Act, German anti-corruption and other local anti-corruption law demonstrate that governments, trade organizations, banks and non-government organizations alike are confronting such corporate corruption through laws and regulations that make various forms of bribery a crime, punishable by unlimited fines.

To address this issue, CRI Group brought the networking session in association with American Business Council of Pakistan, Pakistan France Business Alliance, German Pakistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Swiss Business Council Pakistan to address corporate anti-corruption, bribery enforcement and compliance, with legal heads and decision makers from giant companies in Pakistan. This event brought corporate leaders & policy makers together to discuss effective internal controls, ethics, compliance and measures for preventing and detecting bribery within an organization.
During this event, the latest anti-bribery insights were discussed and the ways to proactively tailor your compliance programme with regards to ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System. The main objective and benefit of this event was to conduct a networking session on recent enforcement trends regarding bribery and anti-bribery compliance.

In 2016, CRI Group launched its Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Centre of Excellence (ABAC® CoE) to offer CRI Certification and expert training in programs 3PRM-Certified™ and 3PRM-Qualified™. Recently, CRI Group has been granted accreditation by the Dubai Accreditation Department (DAC) and is the foremost Conformity Assessment Body in ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management Systems Certification, providing expert lead auditor and internal auditor training through its highly regarded Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption (ABAC®) Centre of Excellence.

CRI Group is pleased that the interest in anti-bribery solutions is constantly increasing. The company thanks all the participants and is happy to inform that the second session on this topic is being conducted on 16th of March at Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
