Interest in subjects compliance

Now, when compliance is now part of management committees and part of the everyday workings of companies and French governmental administrations, but also of many professions, Le Cercle de la Compliance wants compliance’s perception today of being punitive, legal and bureaucratic to change and to be demystified and, lastly, to be understood and experienced as an essential factor of development and competitiveness.

In this respect, Le Cercle wants:

  • compliance practitioners to be able to develop their expertise by offering them the possibility of coming together, sharing and learning from one another
  • the solutions, tools or services that can simplify the management of compliance to be explored ;
  • the largest number of entities (SME, mid-cap companies, the public sphere, professional federations, regulated sectors, etc.) and inhouse practitioners  (compliance, auditing, legal, risks, governance, finance, human resources, supply chain departments, etc.) to be able to be a part of this trend, all while maintaining their custom of being open  to service providers, experts and consultants, both French and foreign.

Promoting Compliance

Le Cercle organizes multiple events:

Sensitization breakfasts and sometimes training and workshops for analysis and comparative discussions on the legal and practical aspects involving compliance themes, conferences bringing together cutting-edge experts and specialists on French and international compliance issues, e.g., Le Cercle’s Annual Conference at the OECD.

Le Cercle also participates in events organized by other organizations and collaborates with many French and international organizations with compliance influence, as with its partnership with Ethisphere.

Le Cercle is also a partner with Paris University II Panthéon-Assas for introducing a Compliance Officer university degree directed by Professor Antoine Gaudement and with Paris Dauphine  and with Paris Dauphine, which has put into place a continued education curriculum for obtaining the Compliance Certificate, under the leadership of Sophie Schiller.
