Our Values and Commitments
Excellence in anti-corruption complianceWe are committed to providing the highest level of excellence in anti-corruption certification through the constant improvement of our terms of reference, the professionalism of our accredited auditors and the international, legal and operational expertise of our certification committee members. We believe that anti-corruption compliance is an ongoing challenge that requires searching for best practices, continually improving compliance programs and adapting them to ever-changing corruption risks. We are convinced that, with the help of our accredited lead auditors, our certification committee and our team, compliance officers of certified companies can meet this challenge and become best in class.
Transparency of processesWe are committed to providing a fully transparent certification process, by making our terms of reference free and publicly available, by openly listing our committee members, and by providing all information relevant to the certificates awarded, including on what grounds they were awarded. We believe that making our terms of reference, methodology and processes publicly available is important to the legitimacy of our certificates; ultimately, it increases the recognition of certified companies’ anti-corruption commitments.
Support for compliance officersWe are committed to providing a certification process designed to help compliance officers continually improve their companies’ anti-corruption programs. We are convinced that ETHIC Intelligence anti-corruption compliance certification serves not only as a benchmark but as a management tool for the compliance community – whether in attaining internal support for compliance programs, identifying weaknesses and concrete steps to strengthening the programs, or in sending the message that integrity matters.
Independence of judgmentWe are committed to providing a certification process free of any conflict of interest in order to guarantee the value of our certificates. We believe that the independence of our auditors, of our certification committee members and of ETHIC Intelligence staff is critical for the public and legal recognition of our certified companies’ anti-corruption efforts.
Competitiveness through complianceWe are committed to providing a certification process which contributes to companies’ sustainable development. We know that anti-corruption compliance fosters long-term competitiveness as it demonstrates that success in commercial operations is achieved through hard work, innovation, and quality of products and services.
Intelligence of approach to complianceWe are committed to providing a certification process which values integrating anti-corruption compliance into daily business practices and overall strategy. We believe that anti-corruption processes and systems are essential but can be effective only if embedded in company strategy and supported by a true culture of integrity. →Click here for more on corporate anti-corruption compliance program certification →Click here to access free tools and resources for compliance functions
