Compliance risk describes an organisation’s exposure to penalties and other forms of loss for failing to meet its obligations.
Mandatory obligations generate the most obvious compliance risks, and are the concrete legal requirements created by laws, regulations and contract provisions.
Voluntary obligations also create compliance risks, and are the softer obligations created by an organisation’s values and social commitments.
Whether you’re an experienced risk and compliance practitioner, or have just started your compliance journey, this complimentary checklist is designed to help you mitigate compliance risk. The content of this checklist has been taken from the LexisNexis® Regulatory Compliance module called Risk and Compliance, and has been developed in conjunction with Simon Levy, CEO of RMIA and Martin Tolar, CEO of ISO Certified.
