Why is compliance becoming increasingly important?

Compliance is becoming increasingly important because of the growing number of rules and social expectations. Organisations must follow complex laws, industry standards, and ethical guidelines to avoid damaging their reputations and facing legal consequences.

An effective compliance program builds trust with customers, stakeholders and promotes sustainable growth in a highly regulated world.

What's the difference between legal and compliance?

Legal deals with the legal aspects of laws, regulations, and legal procedures, focusing on defending an organisation's rights and interests.

Compliance focuses on adhering to rules, standards, and regulations to minimise risks and ensure ethical business practices. Legal interprets and defends laws, while compliance focuses on implementing them within the organisation's operations.

What exactly falls under compliance?

Compliance refers to meeting an organisation's legal requirements, internal policies, and industry standards. It includes:
