Requirements of BS 10500

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.

This British Standard takes into account internationally recognized good practice. It specifies how an organization can implement risk-based policies, procedures and controls. Applying it correctly, can help to establish that an organization has put in place reasonable and proportionate measures designed to prevent bribery.

Led by an experienced tutor, this one day course will introduce the concepts of anti-bribery, explain the benefits of an ABMS, and explain the key requirements and context of BS 10500. It is applicable to all organizations including the public, private and voluntary sectors.

This course was developed in association with the City of London Police, Economic Crime and Fraud Training Academy. The City of London Police is a founder member of the International Foreign Bribery Taskforce and works with law enforcement agencies around the world to investigate and prevent economic crime.
