VivaCell-MTS is the first company in Armenia to receive the international certificates for prevention of corruption and bribery ISO 37001 and ISO 19600, and it is conditioned not by legal demands to us, but by our desire and willingness to comply with the highest standards of corporate management at international level,” said Mr. Yirikian, adding it was a voluntary act on the part of VivaCell-MTS.
