What is compliance ?

Compliance is the set of processes designed to ensure that a company, its managers and its employees respect the legal and ethical standards applicable to them. The objective is to protect companies from the financial, legal and reputational risks they incur when they do not respect laws, regulations, agreements or simply a certain ethic or deontology. Indeed, when a company is implicated, the consequences are financial, commercial and human: the company in question will inevitably suffer from the reputation it has been given, since a tarnished image will make it more difficult to access financing.
