Criminal
Compliance

In recent years, organisations have gone a long way in the development of their Compliance programmes. The most recent reform of Spain’s Penal Code, which came into force in 2015, ratified the introduction of criminal liability for legal entities regarding offences committed for their own benefit. Criminal Compliance Programmes must include an analysis of the risks of a criminal nature that organisations may face, with a view to the company’s implementation of management and control models for preventing criminal acts.
