The ISO 37001 certification was awarded to Crédit Agricole in 2016 by Euro Compliance[1] and recognises the Group’s determination and the quality of its fraud prevention programme. It certifies that corruption risks have been identified and analysed and that the programme applied by Crédit Agricole is designed to limit these different risks by applying international best practices.

The ISO 37001 certification covers all the Crédit Agricole Group businesses in France and abroad as well as its 147,000 employees and 53 million customers.

Crédit Agricole Group has adopted an Ethics Charter which applies to all Group players (administrators, executives and employees) and aims to:

  • protect the interests of customers
  • fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism 
  • respect international sanctions 
  • fight against corruption
  • prevent fraud
  • protect market integrity.

For Martine Boutinet, Crédit Agricole S.A. Compliance Director, “This certification demonstrates the Group's commitment to placing compliance, ethics and the fight against corruption at the heart of its development.”
