Developing an Effective Compliance Monitoring Programme
It is a regulatory requirement for all firms to establish and maintain effective systems and controls. These controls ensure that firms are managed effectively and responsibly in Compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
A robust Compliance Monitoring Programme (CMP) should support effective Corporate Governance and mitigate Compliance risk. It is essential that the monitoring programme is implemented effectively and that it produces accurate and timely data to measure programme performance.
CCL Academy has developed this workshop to meet the needs of Senior Managers and Compliance professionals who require a comprehensive analysis of the key elements of a Compliance Monitoring Programme (CMP). This workshop style programme provides a practical guide to assessing the appropriateness and effectiveness for existing systems and controls. The programme has been designed by CCL Academy trainers and consultants who have over 50 years' experience as Consultants, Compliance Officers and Regulators.
