Press note: Saipem among the first Italian companies to achieve ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Corruption Certification

San Donato Milanese (MI), 29 June 2018 – Saipem is among the first Italian companies to achieve the international certificate ISO 37001:2016 "Anti-corruption management systems".  This certification, awarded by DNV GL AS, a Norwegian company which is one of the leading certification bodies both in Italy and in the world, identifies a management standard that helps organisations in the fight against corruption, establishing a culture of integrity, transparency and compliance. The regulation can provide significant help in implementing effective measures to prevent and deal with corruption.

process descriptions in which the anti-corruption safeguards are included in appropriate phases, where there is widespread knowledge of the corruptive risks in each role and of the prevention measures that must be adopted and a systematic application of procedures".
