All over Europe listed companies are continuously facing a growing number of challenges related to implementing compliance, risk, governance and internal controls issues, with an ever increasing number of rules regulations and directives.
Concerns over the entire package of governance, risks and compliance responsibilities of publicly traded firms have been heightened by revelations of certain improprieties over the past years. This uncertainty has sent ripples to some companies while others have concentrated their efforts to implement better standards in corporate governance and internal controls.
Internal and external regulations are putting pressure on the way company’s run their daily business. Compliance is now driving critical dependencies on many business processes. Business issues like: Sarbanes-Oxley, EU’s 4th, 7th and 8th directives (EuroSox), Basel II, Solvency, MIFID, SAS70 and FDA are constantly getting more critical and should be addressed in order to obtain compliance.
The real changes are in accountability, transparency and disclosures. European and International Stock Exchanges, The SEC and its international counterparts and National legislation are compelling companies to make compliance a top priority by assessments and obligations.
The Copenhagen Compliance conference on 22nd November 2007 will give Board members, compliance officers, auditors, attorneys and senior management the tools they need to reduce compliance risk and to sharpen your knowledge and skills to be equipped to meet the EuroSox Compliance challenge with confidence.
The goal of the Scandinavian Compliance events is to focus on the quality of the speakers and practical information conveyed. Recognized regulatory, audit, legal, and industry experts will convey the message on new regulatory developments and offer practical hands-on direction on establishing and updating compliance policies and procedures.
Here’s a sneak peek of the program that is designed to address the essentials of EuroSox compliance requirements and best practices to provide guidance to create the foundation of an effective compliance program.
The conference will be followed up by virtual Roundtable Sessions so that attendees can actively participate, learn from their peers who deal with similar compliance situations and find solutions.
