“Compliance, a must for every organization”

Compliance, indispensibale in today’s organizations. As the term already suggests: it is inherent to the verb ‘to comply’ and means conformity. In recent years, the term Compliance has become a true discipline and the designation is used as a technical term to indicate an organization complies with relevant laws and regulations. Especially financial instutions such as banks and insurance companies are forced to comply.

Two dimensions…

Compliance describes the ability to act accordingly to an order, set of rules or request. In the context of financial services businesses, Compliance includes two dimensions:

  • compliance with the external rules that are imposed upon an organization as a whole;
  • compliance with internal systems of control that are imposed to achieve compliance with the externally imposed rules.

The Compliance department

The overriding objectives of a compliance department should ensure an organization has systems of internal control that adequately measure and manage the risks that it faces.

The general responsibility of the Compliance department is to provide an in-house Compliance service that effectively supports business areas in their duty to comply with relevant laws and regulations and internal procedures.
