Medical procurement of Ukraine received international certification according to the anti-bribery standard ISO 37001:2016

The national agency "Medical Procurement of Ukraine" is the first in the procurement field of Ukraine to receive the international certification of the anti-bribery standard ISO 37001:2016.

This is a global standard of the International Organization for Standardization, which determines the quality of anti-corruption policies and practices operating in the institution. 

The verification process includes a mandatory in-depth audit of internal business processes. In the MPU case, the review lasted more than a year. The development of all necessary policies and procedures and their implementation began at the end of 2019.

To comply with ISO 37001:2016 certification, an organization must meet many criteria. In particular, have a well-developed anti-corruption system, cooperate only with proven partners, regularly conduct inspections and training for employees, have a whistleblower protection system, etc.

"Medical procurement of Ukraine adheres to the principle of zero tolerance to corruption. We are proud of our reputation. During the 4 years of MPU`s activity, there was not detected even a single corruption case. To maintain this result, we check our suppliers through government registries. Employment candidates in our agency also undergo an integrity check", says Dmytro Bihunets, deputy general manager of the MPU on Anti-corruption work and Compliance.

According to him, the ISO 37001:2016 certification is a confirmation of the high quality of the anti-corruption policy implemented in Medical Procurement of Ukraine: "MPU is the third Ukrainian institution that received a certificate according to ISO 37001:2016. Only 20 organizations in the world working in the medical field have it. The fact that we have passed the certification and received a favorable assessment indicates the development of the anti-corruption and procurement sphere in our country".
