Anti-bribery Management Systems (ABMS) Training Course BS: 10500

With reputation, sustainability and growth at stake, businesses now recognize the risk it poses and understand that having an effective anti-bribery policy and measures in place not only helps to dissuade and prevent the act itself, it can also positively encourage confidence in their business from their customers, their supply chain and other important stake holders.

The UK Bribery Act 2010 is established as the gold standard to effectively prosecute and prevent bribery in relation to UK organizations and those associated with them operating domestically and overseas. This British standard has been developed in response to the need to show that organizations can effectively counter the risk of bribery and demonstrate they have implemented “adequate procedures” that are reasonable and proportional to prevent bribery. 

An anti-bribery management system (ABMS), based on BS 10500, will provide your organization with a framework for prohibiting, preventing, detecting, reporting and dealing with any bribery that does occur. It takes into account the requirements of the UK Bribery Act 2010 and internationally recognized good practice.

The courses follow a structure to help you familiarize yourself with the standard in the Requirements course to learning how to implement an ABMS into an organization. To check your ABMS conforms with the standard, you'll need to learn how to audit or lead a team to conduct the auditing of it. We also have a course for individuals and teams who will deal with the operational and technical aspects of managing anti-bribery measures in your organization.
