Compliance Report

Adherence to compliance guidelines and internal requirements is a management task and responsibility. The Compliance Officer’s task is to support the management, conduct risk analyses, draft a report once a year, and conduct in-person meetings with management twice a year. This report is the first of its kind and will serve as the basis for the compliance processes either to be installed or continued, under particular consideration of compliance relevant issues.
