Network Rail Consulting Ltd certified to British Standard BS 10500:2011 (anti-bribery management system)

Network Rail Consulting Ltd is delighted to announce that it has achieved certification to BS 10500:2011 in recognition of our continuing commitment to anti-bribery best practice.

BS 10500:2011 is the Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) standard developed by the British Standards Institution (BSI) in response to the UK Bribery Act 2010, which became law in July 2011. The legislation prohibits bribery and failing to prevent bribery by associates. It is the strictest anti-bribery legislation in the world and applies to UK companies wherever they operate. 

Our certification gives assurance to Network Rail Consulting Ltd’s clients, partners and stakeholders that we have in place an effective, robust anti-bribery management system. It is part of our drive for good governance and quality right across our business. Nigel Ash, managing director of Networking Rail Consulting, is clear about the benefits:

“We are immensely proud of our rail engineering heritage and success in improving Britain’s railway. We are now exporting this knowledge around the world. The way we do business - which is always with integrity and honesty - is hugely important. Our reputation is built by all of us doing the right thing every day - and preventing bribery is an important part of that. Achieving certification to BS 10500 is a clear statement to our clients and stakeholders about the way we work, and sets out our expectations of our people and business partners."
