Many family-owned businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) still take unnecessary risks. They accept compliance (conformity with legislation, contractual obligations and internal directives) as important in principle, but do not actually have a full-fledged compliance management system in place for identifying and controlling risks. Many SMEs have thus been active in the international arena already for a long time, but have only an inadequate knowledge of the corresponding laws in the countries where they operate.
In addition to civil and criminal liability on the part of the management, companies face the loss of reputation and image. Consequently, executive management and supervisory bodies are increasingly forced to deal with the question of how they can efficiently ensure compliance with legislation, contractual obligations and internal regulations / directives.
We at RSM have developed a multi-stage process for facilitating SMEs the development, implementation and monitoring of an effective compliance management system.
