Vienna, 27 November 2017 – PORR is the first listed company in Austria to receive three certificates for its Compliance Management System: in addition to the Austrian standard “ONR 192050”, the construction company has fulfilled the requirements of the international norms “ISO 19600” and the new “ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems”. The certificates were issued by AUSTRIAN STANDARDS and apply to PORR AG and PORR Bau GmbH. Every PORR subsidiary is also managed by uniform Group-wide standards.
 
The certification to national and international standards is complete: the PORR Compliance Management System incorporates every measure for enforcing internal guidelines and ensuring legally compliant behaviour. Assessments were carried out in the areas of corruption, cartel law, issuer compliance, wage dumping and social dumping.
 
PORR already put in place clear guidelines for staff several years ago for every company division; staff members operate safely within these guidelines under which they can make decisions in good faith and good conscience. Recent years have also seen the Compliance Guidelines integrated into all documents. 
 
The new worldwide standard ISO 37001 “Anti-Bribery Management Systems” was approved at the end of 2016. PORR is the first construction company in Austria to implement this standard and is also among the first in the industry internationally. “This was a major priority for us. PORR is well aware of our responsibility as a corporation with a high impact on society,” said PORR CEO Karl-Heinz Strauss, adding: “There is no place for corruption with us.”
