The Compliance Enforcement Officer is Responsible for Assuring that the Corporation Is Fulfilling its Duties.
The Central Compliance Agency Assure That The Policies, Guidelines And Training Tools Are in Line With Federal, State and Local Regulatory Agencies.
The Compliance Enforcement Officer is Responsible for Assuring That The Corporation Fulfills Its Regulatory Duties—not that the company will fulfill those duties, perfectly and in every instance. The company won’t fulfill its duties perfectly. Sooner or later some employee or business partner will commit a Compliance Violation or make a Mistake. That’s fine.
Regulators Acknowledge Compliance Assessment Efforts if they see that the Company was making a Good-Faith Effort to Care About Corperate Compliance.
Compliance Officers work to assure that the company has drafted policies and trained employees on what those policies are.
Well, an Employee Might Ignore Company Policies and Training, and Violate a Compliance Regulation.
With The CCA's Compliance Management, The Company Will be in a Far Better Position With Regulators, if it Can Demonstrate That it Tried its est to reduce the instances of Compliance Violations.
On The Other hand, if a Company in Violation Made no Effort to Bother With Compliance Management—Never Adopted Any Policies, Never Trained Employees, Never Examined Potentially Violations—Regulatory Agencies Will be Much More Likely to Decide That The Company is The Problem Because it Didn’t Take Federal Compliance Seriously.
The Central Compliance Agency Helps Corporations Nationwide take its Duties Seriously.
That’s the nuts-and-bolts definition of what a compliance officer does. Compliance officers also fill many other roles that are a bit more metaphysical in their nature. Let’s consider those, too.
Compliance officers encounter suspicious issues all the time. Some are anonymous reports, others are the results of audits, and yet more might be the product of your own gut instinct that something is amiss. Compliance Officers Need to Investigate Those Questions (or parcel them out to others who can) and find answers.
The hard part isn’t understanding what a compliance officer does; it’s understanding how to administer all those duties at scale—with thousands of employees, tens of thousands of third parties, and potentially millions of transactions.
Compliance Officers sometimes need to make difficult decisions about what the best course of action is in complex, ambiguous circumstances. They might also need to Define Ethical Principles for the company, so others know how to make similarly difficult decisions. That requires an ability to sit back and think about ethics, and how those values fit into your company’s everyday transactions.
Compliance officers train others. Sometimes they Train The Employees and Sometimes They Train Managers who train employees.
Sometimes They Brief the Board on Ethical Conduct and Duties Required under the law.
Whatever the setting, Compliance Officers Need to be Comfortable Teaching Others.
This is a corollary to the technologist role, above. Compliance Officers also need to design business processes that employees and third parties can use, to fulfill whatever compliance duties the company has—and that you’re putting upon them. If those processes are too burdensome or don’t work, employees will see compliance as an intrusion on their “real jobs,” and then you’re sunk.
Sometimes employees will come to the compliance officer with a question or concern, uncertain how to proceed. The compliance officer needs to be ready to offer advice.
Likewise, employees may come to the compliance officer to confess misconduct they’ve already done. Yes, they may be looking to unburden their soul or save their job. The compliance officer needs to hear that confession and then help employees and companies alike to do the right thing.
The best way to answer this question might be to imagine the converse: a large company without a compliance officer.
In all likelihood, that company’s executives and employees will still want to be an ethical company. Various groups will try their best to obey the law, follow regulations, and act in an ethical manner.
But does anyone really believe that the company will succeed at the goal?
The plain truth is that most companies need someone assigned to compliance because Corporate Compliance has become such a complex and wide-ranging endeavor. Leaving each business department to manage its own Compliance Affairs is a bit like letting a group of medical specialists care for a patient without a primary care doctor to monitor the patient’s overall health. Sure, everyone means well, and you might get great treatment for specific ailments—but you won’t get any holistic sense of how healthy you are, and lord knows how much more money you end up paying for unnecessary treatments and co-pays.
Compliance without a compliance officer is a lot like that: undisciplined, scattershot, effective in some ways but ineffective in others, and expensive.
* Compliance Officers May Also Design or Update Internal Policies to mitigate the risk of the company breaking laws and regulations.
