ISO 37001 Readiness Assessment™

ISO 37001 Readiness Assessment

What is the ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment™?

The ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment™ is an interactive workshop and gap analysis exercise designed to assess objectively how your organisation's anti-bribery management system measures up against the requirements of the ISO 37001 standard on anti-bribery management systems.

ETHIC Intelligence® experts will walk you through each requirement to see what controls and processes you have in place. Following the workshop, you will receive a scorecard and report outlining how your existing anti-bribery program measures up against ISO 37001.

As a management system standard, ISO 37001 requires that different parts of an organisation be involved in designing, implementing, reviewing, and improving the anti-bribery system. Though primarily managed by compliance; operations, human resources, procurement, communications, legal, audit, and finance all have a role to play.


  • An interactive workshop with top management starts with a briefing on the ISO 37001 anti-bribery management systems standard and determines the scope of the ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment.™

  • Participants are asked questions from a handbook prepared by ETHIC Intelligence® specifically on the ISO 37001 to learn about existing anti-bribery controls, processes, and documentation.

  • Based on responses, a quantitative assessment is conducted to evaluate how the organisation measures against each requirement.

  • A report is delivered to your organisation documenting findings for your management team’s review. The seminar necessitates the participation of all branches’ representatives involved in the anti-bribery management system as indicated above.

The benefits of the ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment™

The ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment™ is ideal for organisations that are considering ISO 37001 certification, but need reassurance on the readiness of their existing controls and processes. This valuable assessment will highlight problem areas that require further development prior to undergoing an audit.

The benefits of a Readiness Assessment™ are:

  • You will receive an objective benchmarking of your organisation’s anti-bribery program.
  • The scoring of each requirement helps your organisation prepare for an ISO 37001 audit.
  • You will be able to use our report as an input to develop a plan for further development of your anti-bribery program. 

Presentation of the results and deliverables

At the end of the ETHIC Intelligence® Readiness Assessment™ seminar, the percentage of deployment is automatically transformed into a graphic indicating the level of achievement of the anti-bribery management system. A written report follows a week later.
