The Big Tick: Build and maintain external confidence
Integritas360 is currently developing an Anti-Corruption Compliance Certification system specifically tailored to charities and other non-profits. The criteria used will incorporate various international anti-fraud and anti-corruption legislation and best practices, recommendations, administrative proceedings and guidelines issued by organisations such as the OECD, the World Bank, Transparency International, the US Department of Justice and the UK Ministry of Justice. It will also take into account various anti-corruption compliance standards such as AS 8001–2008 (Standards Australia) and BS 10500:2011 (British Standards).
Organisations wishing to obtain Integritas360 certification will need to satisfy the highest standards, with an anti-corruption compliance programmes designed to respond to local jurisdiction and evolving international best practice alike.
Holding an external anti-corruption certification is confirmation of your non-profit or charity’s commitment to maintaining the highest levels of governance possible. The process to achieve certification will also provide direct support to management in reducing an organisation’s overall corruption-risk profile by increasing the visibility of anti-corruption commitments.
