Baku, Azerbaijan, April 12
Nobel Oil Services for the first time in the oil and gas industry in the South Caucasusobtained ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ABMS) certification, which is an important part of Ethics & Compliance, by applying the first international standard in the area of anti-bribery and corruption management system.
ABMS certification assures the prevention, detection and response to any corruption and bribery by putting in place best international practices on anti-bribery controls. The certificate is awarded upon the result of an audit by LRQA, a part of UK-based Lloyd's Register Group Limited, which operates in 120 counties and serves 45,000 customers worldwide.
Application of the standard plays an important role of supporting guidance and allows the Company to ensure essential requirements for implementation and benchmarking an anti-bribery management system. The company accepts responsibility and provides assurance to shareholders, management, employees, clients as well as other stakeholders to undertake reasonable actions to prevent bribery.
