Corporate Compliance and Good Governance Certification

The word compliance, round circle, green background

Good Corporate Governance, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​compliance, transparency and integrity

Faced with the increasingly prolific and demanding national and international legislation across different fields (regulatory, money laundering, corruption, criminal, etc.), compliance systems are emerging as increasingly necessary self-regulation mechanisms to avoid the risk of regulatory, operative or reputational non-compliance.

The certification of criminal compliance and anti-bribery systems are relevant elements to consider in order to prove due diligence, the prevention of illegal acts and the efficient implementation and improvement of a management system. Among other things, this system must ensure and provide evidence to management, administrators, legal authorities, shareholders, investors, customers and other stakeholders, that the organization has taken reasonable measures to prevent any offences, corruption or bribery, thus reducing criminal risk exposure.

To do this, the certification must be awarded from a perspective of strictness, independence and sufficient competence for it to be a useful tool for all stakeholders. Since 2014, AENOR, a pioneer in this field, has certified the criminal compliance and anti-bribery systems of national and international companies, offering advanced and recognized solutions that reflect the best international practices, such as certification of ISO 37001 on bribery prevention or standard UNE 19601 , on criminal compliance management.

On 28 April 2023, the validity period for the certificates of Criminal Compliance issued without accreditation in accordance with UNE 19601 finishes. In order for these certificates to remain in force, they must be adapted to the new accreditation conditions. At AENOR we work with and are in contact with our customers to plan and carry out the necessary assessments in time, in order to ensure that their certificates are adapted to the needs required by the accreditation and do not lose their validity.
