Regardless of industry or where your business is located, operations and transactions are subject to at least some form of government of professional regulation. That is just a fact of the modern business environment. However, for some businesses, complying with laws and regulations is key to their very existence and factors into every decision.
Tracking recent developments and changes in the regulatory environment, developing a strategic plan to comply with applicable regulations, and ensuring that the strategic plan is properly implemented and accounted for during any business decision-making process is the role of the Compliance Officer.
Effective compliance officers will have several years of experience working with compliance issues, particularly within the industry in general. Compliance officers also tend to be meticulous and thorough and possess a demonstrable ability to communicate and persuade executives and high-level managers regarding compliance matters.
