Özet: Compliance is a topic which is significant for German companies due to its high potential for damages and loss of reputation. Fines for compliance violations can nowadays even hit the 1 billion Euro level, especially when it comes to cases of corruption and violations of antitrust law. Furthermore, companies in which compliance violations have been detected become news in German media, which generally leads to a considerable damage of the companies’ reputation. That is why one of the main compliance goals is to avoid liability beforehand by establishing a proper, risk-based compliance organization (preventive compliance). If issues of non-compliance occur nevertheless, they have to be detected and resolved accordingly (repressive compliance).
