WHAT IS COMPLIANCE?

Compliance is the process whereby Companies ensure their operations meet all legal standards and requirements imposed by applicable legislation and regulatory agencies, also including those provided by “best business practices”, and are performed as per ethical and moral standards.

THE ETIKA SOLUTION

The general principles listed here as the Etika Review Process should be applicable to all Companies, although it is for each individual Company to determine how best these should be implemented according to its particular structure, business sector, size, risk profile and exposure, among other elements.

WHY KEEP A COMPLIANCE PROGRAM?

Whenever an event occurs that could give rise for sanctions to be imposed against the Company, its Directors or Representatives, and the official examining the case or Judge in charge of hearing the same is empowered to resolve as to whether the proceeding should be initiated or continued, whether to impose sanctions (either monetary of a jail sentence), keeping an effective compliance program and demonstrating the Company is making its best efforts to avoid the circumstances that give rise to the event may help evidence the Company’s good faith.
