The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has included the Business Anti-Corruption Portal, produced by GAN Integrity Solutions, in its new guide (available here) to help small and medium-sized enterprises address third-party corruption risks.
‘We’re happy the Portal is referenced in the ICC’s new guide’, says GAN CEO, Claus Højbjerg Andersen. ‘We constantly update and seek to improve the Portal to secure its status as the best free anti-corruption compliance resource, and citations like this show the Portal is valued by important actors in the business community’. Private sector endorsements of the Portal are also mirrored in the public sector: In December 2014, the UK Government included the Portal in its most recent Anti-Corruption Plan.
