ISO 19600 is being replaced – Meet ISO 37301
SO 37301 was published on April 13, 2021. It is a so-called Type A standard and, unlike its predecessor ISO 19600, certifiable. That being said, 90 percent of the new standard is based on ISO 19600. Companies who have previously aligned themselves to this one will not need to make radical changes.
Why a compliance management system (CMS)?
Growing regulatory density, new liability issues for management, and scandals that put reputation at risk have led to organizations becoming ever more aware of compliance issues. Stakeholders expect companies to ensure conformity with regulations along the entire value chain. Do you want to improve your compliance with legal specifications and other regulatory standards? Using a compliance management system (CMS) reduces liability risks and builds trust. It is advantageous when being awarded contracts, minimizes borrowing costs, and improves corporate image.
