Compliance is the set of measures taken to ensure that a company, its managers and its employees comply with the legal, regulatory, disciplinary and ethical standards applicable to them. These different processes and steps relate to a wide range of legal areas and risks (anti-corruption, fraud, cybersecurity, data protection, corporate social and environmental responsibility, competition, tax evasion, etc.)
In addition, the various French and European legal and regulatory instruments in this area (Sapin II Act, Duty of Vigilance Act, GDPR, etc.) impose a day to day compliance capacity and require companies to be able to react quickly in the face of emergencies and crisis situations. Compliance programmes must therefore enable businesses to understand and anticipate these issues.
A joined-up compliance strategy is therefore essential to anticipate the risks and make business ethics part of a company’s professional offer.
