Compliance Information Center
Over the years, risk management has become a major issue for companies that have been faced for decades with an increased criminalization of their activities and an explosion of new and increasingly complex regulations in a growing number of areas.
This regulatory hell is paved with good intentions. There can be no State of Law without rules that are enforceable against everyone: Free competition where the dice are not loaded, a society where everyone’s freedom is protected and corruption is fought, in a global environment increasingly polluted by kleptocracies and rogue States.
Compliance has gained prominence in France since the adoption in 2016 of the Sapin 2 Law which imposed ethical rules largely inspired by the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials.
These rules require companies to implement complex internal monitoring and control systems following the recommendations of the French Anti-Corruption Agency created by the Sapin 2 Law. The adoption of these systems first requires risk mapping.
The purpose of our Compliance Information Center is to inform companies about the compliance measures and systems that they must absolutely adopt.
Our firm, because of our wide range of practice areas and our international culture, is particularly well-equipped to help companies take up this important challenge.
