A new international standard for compliance management systems (CMS) was published on April 13th 2021. Known as ISO 37301, the standard replaces ISO 19600. There are several new developments.
If your organisation is already aligned with ISO 19600, then it is important to understand the developments in ISO 37301. We have no doubt that these developments will be embraced by organisations who aim to have a strong and robust CMS.
Organisations already aligned with ISO 19600 understand how a robust CMS helps to build sustainable businesses. At Deloitte, we believe that ISO 37301 takes the management of compliance risk to the next level, with practical, relevant and detailed guidance. The developments have been agreed to by subject-matter experts from around the world, who know exactly what industries need. Deloitte’s compliance experts are on hand to help guide your organisation through the amendments, supporting your business to continue to have a strong and robust CMS.
Deloitte has over 30 years’ experience supporting organisations to assess their compliance management systems against prior standards, advising required changes and assisting with implementation. We are also active committee members working with the Governance Risk and Compliance Institute (GRCI) who represent the International Federation of Compliance Associations (IFCA) in contributing to the draft development of ISO 37301.
Keep watching this space as we will be providing regular updates on the development of ISO 37301. If you require further information or other support with improving your compliance management system or preparing for ISO 37301, please contact us.
