Building consensus on ISO 37001 requirements

As a management system standard, ISO 37001 requires that different parts of an organization be involved in designing, implementing reviewing and improving the anti-bribery system; Compliance but also Operations, Human Resources, Procurement, Communication, Legal, Audit and Finance all have a role to play, in one way or another.

Through an in-situ or a Webex seminar, an ETHIC Intelligence senior expert explains the standard, requirement by requirement, and invites participants to determine their specific responsibility and what is expected from them.

The Gap Analysis allows a very rapid identification of what has already be done by the organization and of what might still be needed for a successful certification.

The ETHIC Intelligence Gap Analysis is recommended for organizations who believe they might be ready for certification, yet want to verify, prior to the certification audit, that nothing important is omitted.

The Gap Analysis tool offers a very efficient, cost-effective road map.


The seminar necessitates the participation of all branches’ representatives involved in the anti-bribery management system as indicated above.

Two ETHIC Intelligence experts participate to the seminar: one details the requirements and leads the discussion; the second one fills-in the ETHIC Intelligence Gap Analysis e-Tool.

Each participant has the ETHIC Intelligence Gap Analysis Handbook on which he can write, for each requirement what is expected from him.

At the end of the seminar, ETHIC Intelligence presents the result of the Gap Analysis.

The Gap Analysis can be held during a one day in-situ seminar.

To accommodate people with remote subsidiaries or operation, the seminar can be held via Webex sessions as well.

Presentation of the results

At the end of the Gap Analysis Seminar, the percentage of deployment is automatically transformed into a graphic indicating the level of achievement of the anti-bribery management system.
