Anti-Bribery Management System ISO 37001: 2016

In the third ordinary session of the Economic and Productive Sectorial Cabinet, on December 21, 2018, the Development Bank of Ecuador B.P. (BDE), being a member of the aforementioned collegiate body, assumed the commitment to implement and certify the "Anti-bribery Management System of the Development Bank of Ecuador B.P." based on the ISO 37001: 2016 Standard, by signing the document “Institutional Commitment Act”.

In line with the above, the BDE B.P. has defined as an institutional priority the establishment of an Anti-Bribery Management System (SGAS) whose scope applies to all processes, products and services of the Development Bank of Ecuador B.P. at the national level (Headquarters) and at the decentralized level (Zonal Branches).

On its part, the 2019-2021 Institutional Strategic Plan, approved by the Institutional Board of the Development Bank of Ecuador B.P. through Resolution No. 2019-DIR-023, of April 5, 2019, established the following mandatory elements for management as part of the institutional priorities and strategy:

  • Objective No. 6: "Optimize the Bank's internal management and processes to timely comply with our clients and the established quality levels."
  • Strategy No. 6.3: "Implement the ISO-37001 Anti-Bribery Management System in order to strengthen the Bank's transparency and management."

The implementation and certification of the Anti-bribery Management System will underpin the Bank's potential as a business partner which, added to a management based on continuous improvement, contributes favorably to the perception of transparency that BDE BP has. This is confirmed by the results of a survey carried out in 2020, in which the Bank was classified by 94% of its internal and external clients as a transparent entity.

It is a pleasure to announce that, once the Certification Audit of the Anti-bribery Management System of Banco de Desarrollo del Ecuador B.P. has concluded, the auditing company SGS del Ecuador S.A. has decided to "RECOMMEND THE CERTIFICATION AND REGISTRATION of the System in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 37001: 2016 Anti-Bribery Management System."

Through the certification of the Anti-bribery Management System, the Development Bank of Ecuador B.P. fulfills a great institutional and governmental milestone of great relevance for management, ratifying in practice its commitment to high standards of ethics and transparency, to better serve its clients and citizens.
