ETHIC Intelligence® ISO 37001 Pre-Audit™

Ready. Set...Check.

What is the ETHIC Intelligence® Pre-Audit™?

The ETHIC Intelligence® Pre-Audit™ determines your organisation’s readiness for an ISO 37001 certification and helps you understand how the process works prior to conducting a certification audit.


The ETHIC Intelligence Pre-Audit™ is conducted by a fully qualified ISO 37001 auditor which will allow you to obtain a clear understanding of your system's strengths and weaknesses.

How Does it Work?

  1. Prior to the audit, complete our Application Questionnaire so that we can get a better idea of your organisation, goals for certification,
    business model, and anti-bribery requirements.

  2. Based on the responses to the questionnaire, our experts will work with you to select sites for audit based on your organisation’s size, industry,
    risks, current anti-bribery program and certification requirements.

  3. Our auditor and project management team will host a kick-off meeting with your organisation to further understand its context and establish a
    personalised audit program.

  4. Our auditor visits your site, conducts interviews with staff identified in the audit plan, analyses your processes and practices and presents his/her
    findings.

  5. While shorter than a full certification audit, the auditor covers all aspects of the standard's requirements to give you a good understanding of
    how ready you are to pass the certification audit.

  6. Our auditor team drafts the audit report, details the audit findings and identifies strengths and weaknesses in your system.
