Bodo Möller Chemie takes a stand against corruption Global speciality chemicals supplier gains ISO 37001 anti-bribery certification
Offenbach am Main, July 6, 2018 – The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has produced clear guidelines for combating corruption and white-collar crime in the form of ISO 37001. The globally active Bodo Möller Chemie Group is one of the few companies in the world to have itself accredited in this area of compliance by DQS CFS. ISO 37001 is the first supranational standard for setting up an anti-bribery management system and operating it on an ongoing basis. The supranational and cross-sector policy provides instruments for preventing and uncovering potential corruption, as well as corresponding procedures for dealing with suspected corruption. “Trust is a key element in the chemicals sector. This ISO standard is a global standard that reflects our understanding of permissible management practices,” says Frank Haug, CEO of Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
International basis of trust
With sites in Europe, Africa, Asia and America, the company is a leading applications expert and a supplier of speciality chemicals and high-performance adhesives, as well as other epoxy-resin-based products. The certification is valid for the German headquarter of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group and its subsidiaries throughout the world will likewise adapt their working practices to comply with ISO 37001. “Over the last few years our corporate group has expanded to include numerous international subsidiaries. In addition to the long-standing working relationship with our many customers and partners, we also want to establish common standards such as ISO 37001 as a basis for a trusting business relationship,” explains Bodo Möller Chemie CEO Frank Haug. Even countries where the risk of corruption is high, such as Brazil, Iraq, China, Cameroon and India, agreed to the ISO standard. When working with ISO 37001-certified partners, global operators will benefit from clear guidelines for preventing unethical business practices.
