Nowadays, it is a standard that a responsible entrepreneur uses a compliance management system as part of the qualified company management, including risk management. It is a set of measures that, when taken as a whole, ensure the proper internal operation of the organisation and compliance of its activities with legal and other similar rules.

The implementation of compliance programmes for clients typically involves

  • a detailed input analysis – familiarisation with the nature, structure and scope of the client’s activities, identification of potential risks, assessment of the existence, content and current implementation of compliance tools;
  • preventive measures – creation of clear and understandable rules, including their operational implementation at the client’s organisation (training, etc.), setting of competences and responsibilities;
  • control – design and set-up of control tools and their implementation, internal investigations;
  • responses – addressing specific problems and adverse events identified.

Moreover, when Act No. 418/2011 Sb., on the criminal liability of legal entities and proceedings against them became effective as of 1 January 2012, the implementation of compliance programmes within legal persons has become all the more important, since by setting up and implementing the correct preventive measures, a legal person can exclude its criminal liability.

So be a responsible manager and implement a proper compliance programme in your organisation to prevent adverse events and risks, including the prevention of criminal liability.
