Ante la cada vez más prolífica y exigente legislación nacional e internacional en muy diferentes ámbitos (regulatorios, blanqueo de capitales, corrupción, criminal, etc.), los sistemas de compliance surgen como mecanismos de autorregulación cada vez más necesarios para evitar riesgos de incumplimientos normativos, operativos y reputacionales.
The certification of criminal compliance and anti-bribery systems are relevant elements to consider 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 organisation has taken reasonable measures to prevent any offences, corruption or bribery, thus reducing criminal risk exposure.
To do this, the certification of compliance management systems 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 penal compliance and anti-bribery systems to national and international companies, and offers advanced and recognised solutions that compile the best international practices, such as ISO 37001 certification, to prevent bribery, or Standard UNE 19601 on criminal compliance management systems.
