TRACEcertification

THE DUE DILIGENCE STANDARD

TRACEcertification is a heavily benchmarked and comprehensive due diligence review, analysis and approval process establishing that an individual or organization has been thoroughly vetted, trained and certified by TRACE, the world’s leading anti-bribery standard setting organization. TRACE Certified companies are pre-vetted partners for multinational companies seeking to do business with suppliers, agents and consultants who share their commitment to commercial transparency.

The TRACEcertification review process is based on internationally accepted standards and requires candidates to complete global anti-bribery training, adopt a code of conduct and update due diligence information annually. Reports include daily screening of names against international sanctions and enforcement lists.

Companies and individuals that have completed TRACEcertification within the last year are included in the TRACE Intermediary Directory, a publicly searchable database of pre-vetted and trained small and medium-sized entities worldwide. Users may request and obtain TRACE Certified Due Diligence reports for third parties in the Intermediary Directory at no cost.
