Benefits of ISO 37002 certification

We believe ISO 37002 is the best way to manage whistleblowing and incident management for several reasons.

Reduced risk of illegal practices and liability

ISO 37002 supports organisations to encourage speaking up. The more people speak up, the more chance you have of finding out about poor conduct and stopping it. It is always best to manage issues in your time rather than according to a court timeframe.

Increased transparency and accountability

ISO 37002 mandates transparent whistleblowing or speaking up policies and procedures, fostering stakeholder trust. By publishing policies, conducting training and demonstrating commitment, organisations gain greater stakeholder buy-in and exhibit a serious approach to speaking up and proactively managing risks in the company.

Improved compliance with directives, laws and regulations

ISO 37002 aligns with whistleblowing and reporting directives worldwide, allowing organisations to centralise their whistleblowing compliance. Operate across multiple countries with different laws while following the unified ISO 37002 guidelines.

Enhanced reputation by proving compliance

ISO 37002 certification from Speeki Europe elevates your reputation as a responsible and ethical organisation that protects the rights of its employees, contractors and the public.
