Effective compliance programs shall ensure compliance with external laws and regulations as well as internal policies and procedures incl. Code of Conduct.Depending on the risk profile of the organization and its operations, compliance programs will have a particular focus on risk areas related to anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, trade sanctions, human rights, data privacy or competition and anti-trust. Laws and regulations as well as expectations from stakeholders and society are constantly changing and increasing. This means that compliance programs that were "good enough" just a few years ago, today are considered immature.
Compliance integrated into the business processes
In the organizations with mature compliance programs, compliance is an integral part of the business processes. Such integration means that compliance risk assessments are carried out in all units and levels of the business, policies and procedures are risk-based and thus adapted to the company's risk picture, compliance procedures and controls are integrated into existing internal control frameworks and into relevant processes towards external business partners, like e.g. suppliers, agents, intermediaries, M&A targets. Other elements of an effective compliance program include adequate leadership and oversight of the program, communication and effective training, monitoring, auditing, and internal reporting mechanisms including a whistleblowing channel.
The leading companies follow up their compliance program through defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and effective reporting to corporate management and the board of directors.
