Regulatory & Ethical Compliance

Organisations are facing increased ethical and regulatory requirements both in the UK and globally regardless of their sector. Navigating what those requirements are and ensuring you remain compliant with their requirements is an increasingly complex task. Some of the questions we are finding to be increasingly relevant to our clients include:

  • Are adequate procedures in place to effectively mitigate the risks of bribery and corruption in your organisation and in your business relationships?
  • Is your compliance function fit for purpose?
  • Do you receive the right information so as to understand and adequately manage your ethical and regulatory risks?

We have a team of specialists who have the skills and experience to support organisations in assessing and prioritising the ethical and compliance risks they face and supporting the design, development and implementation of enhanced control frameworks which effectively manage these risks.

How can Deloitte help?

We are uniquely positioned to help you navigate this challenging area. We provide a full spectrum of compliance control services including:

  • Benchmarking of your current control environment
  • Designing and implementing control improvements
  • Supporting internal audit functions in assessing ethical and regulatory controls
  • Designing, implementing and assessing compliance programmes and frameworks.

Why Deloitte?

Our global team of regulatory controls and compliance specialists have helped some of the world’s leading organisations navigate their way through regulatory and compliance risks. We have been engaged by our clients to assist on some of the largest and most sophisticated anti-corruption compliance enhancement programmes and in developing their governance frameworks as they relate to ethical and regulatory compliance.

High standards of governance over ethical business conduct are a fundamental pre-requisite for businesses operating globally. It is critical that organisations actively manage the criminal, regulatory and reputational risks of corrupt practices and an effective anti-corruption programme is an essential preventative element of these standards.

Acting after the event isn’t enough. Prevention is better than cure and proper preventative measures can be used as a defence in discussions with enforcement officers if an issue arises. Now is the time to be reviewing your existing anti-bribery and corruption procedures and processes and implement remediation measures into day to day business processes to strengthen your existing control environment.

What we do

Our professionals are trained in:

  • Developing state of the art control environments - we assess the adequacy of an organisation’s as-is control framework and how the organisation is able to monitor its compliance with anti-bribery and corruption controls in place. We have a tailored methodology including the framework below against which we evaluate an organisation. We determine the gaps in the current controls and thereafter advise on what changes are necessary to strengthen the current control environment or where efficiencies can be obtained.
  • Embedding enhanced controls – it’s important that all members of staff in an organisation understand the importance of a strong ethical culture. This culture must be embedded throughout the organisation and continuously reinforced with ongoing communication, regular monitoring and periodic refresher trainer. We can advise both on implementation and monitoring of an enhanced compliance programme.

Deloitte is ideally placed to support organisations interested in strengthening their anti-bribery and corruption control environments before a problem arises. We are not investigators or lawyers but control experts, adept at considering how to do things better for the future. We consider the recent past and work alongside organisations to enable them to be better positioned for the future.
