The core task of proper corporate management is to ensure compliance with legal requirements within the company. This duty in its entirety is understood as compliance. In addition to complying with legal obligations, it is also important to ensure compliance and to be able to demonstrate compliance.

Company management is only relieved if it can demonstrate that it has adequately organized compliance as well as observance of compliance. Compliance is thus essentially a question of avoiding liability of the company and also the personal liability of the company management.

Such a task can be successfully completed with the help of an effective compliance management system that regulates, structures and monitors the company’s internal processes.

In the foreground, we see not only the contesting of material or non-material damage due to liability, damages claims, administrative investigative procedures or sanctions, but also the creation of a value-oriented and transparent corporate management, which is perceived externally as the company’s added value.
