Helping to adopt new integrity practices is one of the biggest and most exciting challenges for businesses today.
ICC continues its leadership role in advocating high standards of corporate governance based on ethical business practices with the publication of this Ethics and Compliance Training Handbook, prepared by members of the ICC Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption.
The handbook sets out the challenges which large, medium-sized and smaller companies have to overcome as they build and put into action their corporate compliance programme. It is essentially a training tool, not another treatise on anti-corruption and fair competition.
This practical guide provides hands-on expertise from distinguished practitioners in the field of corporate integrity and compliance. Each chapter deals with a key compliance topic. They offer practical guidance on performing a risk assessment, installing a whistleblowing system, exercising due diligence when selecting agents or intermediaries, and conducting internai investigations. It also covers setting up a training programme, engaging your Board of Directors in compliance efforts, drafting a Code of Conduct, setting up the best compliance system for your company, resisting solicitation and extortion, introducing the ICC Anticorruption Clause in your contracts, mitigating compliance risks arising from joint ventures, and managing the transition to a clean commercial policy. Furthermore, the handbook features a Glossary of terms widely used in anti-corruption and antitrust compliance.
This Ethics and Compliance Training Handbook is especially designed for those who are or will soon be involved in compliance: whether working in an SME in an emerging country or in a large corporate operating on different continents. It will be the tool of reference for managers, compliance officers, lawyers and anyone concerned with stamping out corruption and other anti-competitive practices.
