It’s vital for your business to have a robust compliance programme to prevent regulatory breaches, to respond swiftly to breaches if they arise, to minimise the risk of prosecution and ultimately to protect your brand and reputation. But what does a robust compliance programme look like?

Using a case study from the oil and gas sector, this series of seminars will provide practical tips to demonstrate how to build a cohesive programme in which all key compliance principles work together across multiple regulatory areas, including:

  • anti-bribery and corruption;
  • export and international sanctions compliance;
  • prevention of tax evasion;
  • anti-human trafficking and modern slavery regulations;
  • competition compliance; and
  • anti-money laundering.
  • The series will be delivered over three seminars explaining how this “Compliance Lifecycle” works.

Part one in this series introduces the concept of a “failure to prevent” offence and the compliance principles which are required to defend regulatory breaches.

We will explain: how these principles should work together to form a “Compliance Lifecycle”; how these defences work in practice; how to implement them in your organisation; and the importance of Top Level Commitment and how to demonstrate it.
