Corporate Compliance

Effective corporate compliance is not to be understood as mere housekeeping under a new name. Rather, intelligent corporate governance systems are based on making compliance risks and incidents transparent at an early stage and thus escalating them through the various levels of responsibility so that suitable preventive and reactive measures can be taken in good time.


The documentation of this procedure is particularly important as it is the essential basis for proving that organ trafficking is in accordance with duty and for counteracting any subsequent liability.

  • Preventive corporate compliance means implementing mechanisms under company law to identify and regularly evaluate potential risks
  • Defining rules that specify how these risks are to be dealt with
  • Establishing so-called 'checks and balances' that enable these rules to be effectively enforced.

For the reactive case, depending on the relevance of a compliance risk or incident, the procedure must be defined and implemented which ensures the necessary and appropriate processing up to the (re)definition of future preventive measures.
