Developing an effective anti-corruption program in your organization is just like building an immune system to prevent bribery. A good anti-corruption program helps safe guard the company and its employees from legal, financial, reputational implications. Reviewing CAC’s 71 checklists or 17 checklists is a great starting point to assess how much work needs to be done. The core elements are the corruption risk assessment, establishing key controls / monitoring and developing policy.
Our certification criteria is based on the completeness of your document. Making the key content in your document stand out will help us find what we look for.
Companies that have been certified by CAC will have 3 years until a re-certification is required.
