The purpose of this training course is to provide experienced management system auditors the knowledge and skills required to perform first, second and third-party audits of Anti-Bribery Management Systems (ABMS) against ISO 37001, in accordance with ISO 19011 and ISO/IEC 17021, as applicable.

Capitalising on the powerful Accelerated Learning Technique, this course spends a good portion of the time on discussions, exercises and case studies to help students to consolidate knowledge and acquire hands on experience that are instrumental in their capacity as an ABMS auditor or as an anti-bribery personnel.

Duration: 3 - day course 

ISO 37001 Roadmap - Conversion


Upon completion, successful students will be able to:


  • Describe the purpose of an ABMS and of ABMS standards


  • Plan, conduct, report and follow-up an audit of an ABMS to establish conformity (or otherwise) with ISO 37001, and in accordance with ISO 19011 and ISO/IEC 17021 as applicable

Topics to be covered in this course include:

  • General introduction
  • Anti-bribery management principles and vocabulary and ISO 37001 requirements
  • Stage 1 audit (including document review)
  • Audit planning
  • Process auditing and writing NC reports
  • Audit follow up


There is a balance between knowledge-based presentation, discussions, exercises and case studies. About two third of the time is spent on activity based learning.

Students who passed the continuous assessment and the one hour forty minutes closed book examination will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement.


This course is specially designed for:

  • Staff who are charged with the responsibility to develop and maintain an ABMS
  • Those who wish to explore career opportunities in management system auditing


It is recommended that students are expected to have the following prior knowledge:

Management systems

  • The Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) cycle
  • The core elements of an ABMS and the interrelationship between top management responsibility, policy, objectives, planning, implementation, measurement, review, and continual improvement.
  • Knowledge of management systems audit is required through the satisfactory completion of a CQI and IRCA Certified (or the acceptable alternative) Lead Auditor Training course in another discipline. Delegates who have not successfully completed a CQI and IRCA Certificated Lead Auditor Training course in another discipline are unlikely to complete this 24-course.

ISO 37001

  • Knowledge of the requirements of ISO 37001 and the commonly used anti-bribery management terms and definitions, as given in ISO 37001

Successful completion of this course meets the training requirement for certification on IRCA's auditor/lead auditor scheme.

      For example: A holder of an IRCA certified ISO 9001:2015 lead auditor course Certificate of Achievement who wants to audit against ISO 45001:2018, he can attend the 3 day IRCA certified auditor conversion course instead of the 5 day IRCA certified lead auditor course)

      2 day Auditor Transition/Migration Course
      CQI and IRCA Certified Transition Training brings auditors up to date with revisions to ISO standards. The CQI and IRCA Certified Auditor Transition/Migration Courses provide those currently competent in auditing an ‘old’ standard with the knowledge and skills necessary to audit to the newly released standard.

      For example: Transition from ISO 22000:2005 to ISO 22000:2018, Migration from OHSAS 18001:2007 to ISO 45001:2018.
