ISO 37301 Management Systems Certification
ISO 37301 Compliance Management Systems Certification
Organizations that want to be successful in the long run need to establish and maintain a culture of compliance, considering the needs and expectations of interested parties.
ISO 37301 sets out the requirements and provides guidelines for establishing, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining and improving an effective compliance management system within an organization.
The core values and the good governance, ethical and community standards that the leadership applies, shape the organization’s approach to compliance. Leadership should promote a compliant behavior within the organization based on the organization’s core values and the implementation of the required measures to promote such behavior. Not all organizations, focus on the importance of compliance, hence, increasing their risk for noncompliance in their organization.
When jurisdictions have occurred in an organization, many courts have taken into account the organization’s commitment to compliance based on their Compliance Management System before they decided on the appropriate penalty to be imposed for contraventions of relevant laws. Thus, not only the organizations but also the regulatory and judicial bodies can benefit from this standard as a benchmark.
This standard is intended to be adaptable, and implementation can differ depending on the size and level of maturity of an organization’s compliance management system and on the context, nature and complexity of the organization’s activities and objectives.

ISO 37301 certification (also known as “registration”) is a third-party audit performed by a certification body such as PECB MS who upon verification that an organization is in compliance with the requirements of ISO 37301, will issue an ISO 37301 certificate. This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the Compliance Management System performed on a triennial basis.
