ABOUT US —
A few words about our association
The Business Compliance Association brings together individuals and companies advocating the establishment of a fundamental System of Values in day-to-day business operations.
The founders, members, partners and associates of the Association have recognized the fact that a multilateral approach to the principles of fairness, conscientiousness, good customs and fair relations among companies would also provide at the same time a substantial contribution to other spheres of social life.
The compliance sector has imposed itself as a contemporary point of synthesis of a company’s desire to adapt its orientation toward profit according to the principles of sustainability and academic challenge, the later of which strives to study, build up, improve methodologically and launch this discipline toward a future, independent life.
The need for creating this association emerged spontaneously, at the epicenter of the corporate Compliance profession, where corporate values torchbearers have often been isolated, criticized, insufficiently understood and supported. On the other hand, modern business-running is accompanied by multiple risks, the most sensitive of which have their roots in the violation of ethical principles. The affairs that have eroded the reputation of corporations during the past decades are the prime indicators of the value of continuous compliance investments, the development of adequate defence lines and the Internal Control System. At the same time, the academic community is aware of the fact that business ethics is insufficiently established as a particular scientific discipline, and that, regardless of its current form – the compliance functions may predict a further hybridisation with related disciplines like business law, accounting forensics, organisational sciences, and the like.
Why corporate compliance?
While the term corporate compliance may sound alien to the untrained ear, it is in fact a simple concept that is based on conducting business with honesty, integrity and good will according to well establish international principles and standards.
As a member of the corporate compliance association, any company and/or individual can expect to experience personal growth based on the experiences and expertise shared amongst members. The CCA also acts as a platform for members to share cross-industrial compliance know how and it provides an excellent format for ad-hoc problem solving and discussion.
In addition to this, the association provides an easy way for interaction with other professional associations such as internal auditors and corporate lawyers. The association more often than not serves as the kindling that is needed for the successful development of other compliance related businesses, such as IT companies.
Via its website and application, the CCA also acts as a specialised job posting board for compliance industry related job openings. The association’s digital channels also act as a networking platform for likeminded people who would like to connect and discuss compliance related issues and it provides a digital space for members to share their ideas and musings amongst each other.
Last but not least, the CCA allows its members to learn from one another, thereby elevating the reputation of individual members and their employees. The ultimate end goal of the CCA is to improve the overall business environment and climate in the areas that it operates in.
