Ryzyko zgodności (compliance) jako metod ograniczania ryzyka działalności firm
The compliance assessment is a relatively new area of activity in the functioning of companies. It can be classified as the mechanism to support the internal control systems. The assessment consists in verifying the compliance of the provisions of internal regulations, adopted and used in companies, with binding law regulations. Compliance, therefore, involves systems and procedures designed to avoid legal risk, including civil and administrative penalties and, above all, criminal but also the risk of financial loss and the loss of reputation. The assessment of compliance, thus, aims at avoiding risk that may affect any economic entity as a result of its activities that do not conform to legal norms and standards in force.
