TIU Investments and Management has received the ISO 37001 certification for its anti-corruption management system, which proves the commitment of the company, of its management team, and of all employees in the fight against corruption and corrupt practices.
The certification was granted by the international certification body MSECB Canada (formely PECB) after a thorough audit process that analyzed the adequacy of the bribery and corruption prevention system implemented based on the international management standard ISO 37001. The audit confirmed that the anti-corruption management system has been integrated into the organization’s processes.
“This certification confirms the commitment of TIU Investments and Management, the management company of the UTI Group of companies, to business ethics and acknowledges all the actions taken within the entire group to implement and observe all ethical values, laws and internal compliance procedures in line with the highest international standards. It is also a collective achievement that highlights the involvement of all employees in integrating the fight against corruption into their daily work practices and in the group’s corporate culture. More than an international recognition, this certification is a strong message and a reliable commitment for stakeholders, regulators, customers, and business partners.” stated Razvan Petrescu, Administrator of TIU Investments and Management and UTI President.
ISO 37001 is an anti-corruption methodology to which all UTI companies adhere, guided by the ethical principles and regulations developed by TIU Investments and Management. UTI Construction and Facility Management, certSIGN and Trident Servicii si Mentenanta are among the first companies in Romania to obtain this certification in 2018 and they have maintained it through constant efforts to improve the anti-corruption management system.
