ISO 37301:2021 (CMS) Awareness Training


ISO 37301:2021 is an international standard designed and formulated to help organizations implement a robust Compliance Management System (CMS).

The standard specifies requirements and provides guidelines for establishing, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining and improving an effective CMS within an organization.


A CMS provides organizations a structured approach to meet all compliance obligations, i.e., requirements that they mandatorily have to comply with such as laws, regulations, court rulings, permits, licenses, as well as those that they voluntarily choose to comply with such as internal policies and procedures, codes of conduct, standards, and agreements with communities or NGOs. 

This presentation can be used to brief your employees so as to create awareness of compliance best practices. The material can be integrated with your organization's management system standards training program. It includes the what and why of ISO 37301, the CMS clause structure, and offers practical tips on how to handle an audit session.
