Companies are nowadays involved in ever more complex economic interrelationships. This situation increases the requirements made on compliance. A company must constantly check that it has organized itself and its relations to third parties in such a way that statutory regulations and internal policies are complied with and any criminal offences can be prevented or detected – all this is covered by the concept of “compliance”.
Compliance relies on three columns: Prevent, Detect, Respond. At each of these levels, different measures need to be taken: at the first level, setting up a compliance management system; at the second level, organizing regular compliance audits; and at the third level, readjusting the compliance management system.
Compliance is an interdisciplinary matter.
