Our Solutions Drive Business Performance
We have a long history of innovation and leadership in the Governance & Compliance space and have developed solutions for key risk areas.
ETHIC Intelligence® is an assurance and certification agency with a focus on governance & compliance. Our long history of over 15 years makes us a World leader in certifying and assessing compliance programmes.
Since our inception, ETHIC Intelligence has been at the forefront of creating standards in the Governance & Compliance Industry. In 2006, we developed the first ever standard for certification of anti-corruption programmes. We then participated in the drafting of both the ISO 19600/37301 standard on compliance management systems and the ISO 37001 standard on anti-bribery management systems (requirements with guidance for use published in 2016), which replaced our private standard. ISO 37001 became the first certifiable ISO standard in the area of compliance.
ESG is here to stay and Governance & Compliance adds significant value to any business. Our solutions focus on improving your ESG ratings.
We audit organisations’ governance & compliance systems to gauge their effectiveness in reducing organisational risk. We believe that if done properly, the 'G' in 'ESG' is a huge value driver to a business and our job is to help companies know whether it is, in fact, done properly.
We focus on:
- driving great governance through strong and valuable governance systems
- making your anti-bribery management systems to be a true competitive advantage
- helping you audit and manage third parties to reduce organisational risk
- getting a great whistleblower program in place that adds value to your business
We also provide audit services to non-ISO based compliance programmes for organisations of all types, sizes, and sectors.
Not anyone can do our work. It takes years and years of establishing skillsets, credibility and accreditations.
We are an accredited certification agency to certify certain management systems according to the International Standards Organisation (ISO*) .
In 2019, after a thorough process, we were accredited by both ANAB** and COFRAC *** for the certification of the ISO 37001:2016 standard on Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ABMS).
ESG is a driver of business growth. Our job is to make sure companies do it properly and that it adds value to their business.
ETHIC Intelligence® does not provide guidance nor advice nor consulting on the development of compliance management systems.
ETHIC Intelligence® is ONLY an assurance and certification body and we recommend all clients who are looking for a consulting organisation to help develop a governance or compliance programme to consult with other companies in the management consulting space.
