With the rising levels of perception of corruption in Malaysia, the Corporate Integrity SystemTM Malaysia (CISM) framework was initiated. To ensure the effectiveness of the CISM, stakeholders from various regulatory and economic bodies have formed a roundtable on corporate integrity to embed ethical values into the corporate culture of the nation. The Corporate Integrity Roundtable Members include the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), the Malaysian Institute of Integrity (IIM), Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M), the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU), the Securities Commission of Malaysia (SC) and Bursa Malaysia Berhad (Bursa).
The CISM framework is modelled to support corporate integrity initiatives ? in order to enhance corporate integrity, business ethics and corporate responsibility ? under the directions of the New Economic Model (NEM), Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), and National Integrity Plan (NIP).
