About Compliance

There is no legal definition of compliance. Compliance is embedded into the system of state regulation, self-regulation and individual freedom. Due to its ethical dimension, compliance goes beyond the observation of laws and rules. Compliance is very closely bound to the values in society and reflects its development.

Professionally implemented compliance is characterised by efficiency, creates competitive advantages, minimises liability and reputation risks and contributes to the company’s economic success. Involvement of external service providers is recommended in many cases.
