A critical element of any effective compliance program is monitoring. As a service to our members, each month this column focuses on potential monitors for specific business lines.
In this month’s article on monitoring, we’ll focus on compliance monitoring and why it is a key part of any effective compliance program. One of the most important elements of compliance programs is having a process to identify actual or potential noncompliance so that management can take actions to correct the noncompliance and mitigate the risk of reoccurrence. Monitoring is that process.
