Verified Compliance Management

Compliance Management Systems – Building Trust with ISO 19600

The GC-Mark audit and assurance program is the perfect way to highlight your commitment to compliance: during the audit, our assessors verify the implementation of a robust compliance management system. Third-party confirmation of your CMS greatly enhances trust between business partners and provides assurance that risks associated with laws and regulations are managed appropriately.

What is a compliance management system?

A Compliance Management System (CMS) is a set of processes to make sure that an organization operates in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and codes of conduct. Due to the ever-changing nature of laws and regulations across countries and regions, keeping up to date with the applicable regulations is a never-ending task. An effective CMS enables you to determine the relevant documents, to ensure compliance across the organization and to track and improve compliance.

What is the purpose of ISO 19600?

The international standard ISO 19600 provides guidelines for effective compliance management systems. Based on the principles of good governance, proportionality, transparency and sustainability, it describes the key components and processes of an effective CMS. The standard is a useful tool for organizations that wish to implement a compliance management system or are looking to standardize their system.

How does this relate to the GC-Mark “Verified Compliance Management”?

GC-Mark for compliance management is an audit and assurance scheme, based upon the guidelines of ISO 19600, which in itself is not a certification standard. After a successful audit on site, performed by qualified DQS auditors, you may use the GC-Mark certificate and label to highlight your commitment to compliance.
