Succesfull Compliance - for effcient organisations with ISO 37301:2021, 2. revised edition

Delighted and proud of the ENGLISH VERSION just published of the 2nd revised edition of my practice commentary on ISO 37301:2021, which was newly published in April 2021. The guidance for practical implementation explains all elements of the standard and introduces numerous practical tips to its step-by-step implementation. Individual chapters deal with the integrated implementation together with ISO 37001 Anti-bribery management systems, with the implementation for SME and with certification.
As a contribution to sustainable development, the English version has only been published as an e-book. In contrast to the German edition, which is also available in a print version in addition to the e-book.
A big thank you to all of my so many readers who made the German version publish early this year already a big success!
