BS 10500 case studies
The UK Bribery Act came into force in July 2011 making it a crime for commercial organizations failing to prevent people associated with them from committing bribery on their behalf.
BS 10500:2011 Specification for an anti-bribery management system (ABMS) has been developed in response to the UK Bribery Act and helps you turn legal requirements into practical measures.
Show you have put the right controls in place across your whole business and throughout your supply chain. The BS 10500 standard empowers you to identify risks early and prove that you have the right anti-bribery controls in place.
To demonstrate how this standard can help your organization, BSI has produced four case studies to illustrate the benefits of BS 10500 in action.
Balfour Beatty believes that it has implemented an anti-bribery compliance programme which is compliant with international best practice.
Myers La Roche
While the company already had in place management,financial and commercial controls which would help prevent bribery, it had not yet formally implemented an antibribery compliance programme.
The company’s interest in BS 10500 is not to help it implement a programme, but to measure its own programme against BS 10500 to ascertain whether any further improvements can be made to it.
Collinson Hall wished to use BS 10500 to help it implement an anti-bribery management system, which can both help to prevent bribery occurring in relation to the company’s business and be used as a positive marketing tool to promote the company as a highly ethical practice.
