Our Partner Integrity Audit Service Suite Includes:

Risk Assessment

You are responsible for the acts of your distributors, intermediaries, and third parties. You are responsible for identify those presenting higher risks to your organisation, whether they be legal, ethical, or regulatory. You are also responsible for deciding the mitigation action that needs to be taken. Standard due diligence procedures that cover these responsibilities can be performed based on public data, however more thorough audits conducted by yourself or a third party like ETHIC Intelligence will further decrease your risk.

This solution will help review your risk assessment and the preventive measures you are planning to take, allowing you to have confidence that your finalised audit programme is exceptional. It can then be implemented, reviewing the performance of your suppliers' anti-bribery programmes (whether remotely, sending your teams, or a third party).

Why choose our Partner Integrity Solutions?

In-Person Service

Improve upon your legally required due diligence by hiring an agency that goes beyond the superficial public information that is available on websites or in the media. Our auditors dig deeper in to companies, conducting reviews and audits to limit your risk of exposure. This is particularly important for partners that your organisation might consider "high risk".

Specialisation

We only accept auditors that have a specialization in compliance and have experience on countless auditing jobs. We ensure that our network is spread throughout the globe, with a wide range of spoken languages. This skillset significantly reduces your risk of exposure and limits the amount of time required in order to perform these services. 

Unlike some major competitors, our audits are conducted exclusively on compliance. While this may not be ideal for organisations that would like to perform a tick the box due diligence excercise, that is not our goal. Our Parter Integrity Audit Solutions exist to deliver exceptional results in your third party audits, leaving you to operate with confidence.
