• Increases the visibility of your anti-corruption commitments:

    Anti-corruption certification offers convincing, tangible proof of your compliance efforts with internationally recognized anti-corruption standards. Having your organization’s commitment to transparency validated by an external, independent and highly qualified third party reassures clients and partners on your values and practices and provides you with a differentiating advantage. Communicating your stance on corruption also renders your organization appealing to employees who share your commitment to integrity.
  • Ensures the quality and continuous improvement of your anti-corruption program

    Seeking certification has the initial effect of raising and formalizing processes within the company. The methodology guarantees that organizations awarded a certification have a compliance program adapted to their needs and specificities that remains compliant with international best practices. As best practices evolve, the pursuit of certificate renewal creates incentives for the company to re-evaluate its procedures. The audit report, which is reviewed by the ETHIC Intelligence Committee, composed of experts in the anti-corruption field, provides recommendations that help your organization reinforce its best practices in a way that is tailored to its particularities.
  • Decreases legal and financial risks

    ETHIC Intelligence’s rigorous certification methodology means that the certifications can be used by companies to provide authorities with externally-verified proof of actions taken to prevent corruption in the event of an investigation or a prosecution. Certification demonstrates that compliance programs have been properly designed and implemented by an organization, hence lowering the organization’s liability in the event of bribery by an employee, etc.
