Compliance is one of the most used terms in the economic and financial press in the last years. However, this expression is used in different areas and to refer to a diversity of subjects, without total consensus and clarity on what the benefits and costs that the organization assumes by not implementing the procedures that the companies should take in that area.
According to the study carried out by the Centre for Regulatory Law and Business (CDRE) of the Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD) «Compliance in Chilean companies»(1) , currently the Compliance function at the interior of the company has only a medium relevance in Chile. It is necessary to strengthen this area, following international trends, with the aim that it is not reduced to managing formal controls, but allows modelling a useful figure both in the operation, taking of decisions and administration of the company, as in the prevention of risks in the organization.
In order to continue being a contribution to the company in the prevention, detection and management of compliance risks, contributing to the promotion and development of a culture of better practices in matters of corporate governance, risk management, ethics and legal compliance to throughout the business organization, is that the CDRE has organized these First International Compliance Days, convening academics, researchers, teachers, students, and professionals in the area to present their research and share their work, in order to reflect on the subjects indicated and participate in a debate open to the business and academic community.
