Does Your Compliance Program Need a Check-Up?
By TIMOTHY DICKINSON & CORINNE LAMMERS
When was the last time your anti-corruption compliance program had a check-up? Like any other wellness program, a periodic review of a companys compliance program is an integral component of its overall health. As with many of us who delay personal health check-ups, a compliance check-up is often put off until a problem arises, at which point a significant issue could exist. This note sets out a brief background on anti-corruption compliance reviews and provides a set of basic areas to review which, when adapted to a companys individual risks, can be crafted into a useful tool for ensuring a continued healthy program. Like any other good diagnostic tool, a compliance check-up can keep your company out of trouble.
