Topic Background: In the document â€œCorporate Compliance Principles, developed by the National Center for Preventive Law, a compliance program encompasses the set of operational methods that a company uses to ensure its activities adhere to legal requirements and broader company values. Designing effective compliance programs is an important corporate concern for two reasons. First, public harm and corporate injuries potentially resulting from corporate offenses and deviations from company values justify careful management of offense and misconduct risks. Second, under a number of recently developed legal standards -- most notably the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations, firms with generally effective compliance programs can often significantly reduce or eliminate penalties for offenses that occur despite these programs. In recent years, both federal and state governments have increased enforcement activities as they relate to corporate conduct and compliance. Publicly traded companies and businesses that operate pursuant to a license, permit, statutory scheme or government regulatory approval find themselves subject to higher governmental expectations. Corporations that compete in industries of high government interest, such as health care and financial services, are particularly at risk and are increasingly targeted in both civil and criminal proceedings. Compliance requirements differ across industries, and processes which means the Corporate Compliance Officer must be familiar with the compliance requirements that impact his or her company.
