certSIGN has successfully met the conditions of the ISO 37001 certification confirmation audit regarding its anti-corruption and anti-bribery management system, whose main purpose is the prevention and management of activities with a high risk of corruption.
certSIGN obtained the initial certification in 2018, being one of the first Romanian companies certified according to the ISO 37001 standard, and completed an extensive recertification process in 2021. The company’s compliance with the ISO 37001 standard must be confirmed annually through a surveillance audit that analyzes the prevention and monitoring of bribery and corruption incidents, identifies potentially vulnerable aspects and facilitates the implementation of mitigating measures before they become critical. The certification was granted by the certification body MSECB Canada (formerly PECB) and demonstrates not only the compliance with this standard, but also the company's effort to continuously improve processes, internal regulations, and communication regarding the importance of unethical behavior prevention.
"The certification according to the ISO 37001:2016 standard is another step in certSIGN's efforts to contribute to an ethical and transparent business environment and represents the effort of each member of our team to build, maintain and improve a comprehensive compliance management system, based on zero tolerance towards any form of corrupt behavior, directly or through a third party," declares Adrian Floarea, CEO of certSIGN.
certSIGN invests important resources in obtaining and maintaining the most important certifications, both according to the regulatory standards of the industries in which it operates and according to the standards that govern its business activity, in order to be a reliable business partner. The ISO 37001 certification plays an important role in maintaining the our partners’ trust by creating and maintaining a culture based on integrity, transparency, and compliance, which respects international norms such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act, SAPIN II, and by implementing appropriate measures to monitor and prevent corruption in the company's current activities.
