Third-Party Compliance

Sharing Values when collaborating with Business Partners

3rd-party compliance, sometimes also referred to as supplier compliance or business partner compliance, is essential for each and every organisation, regardless of its type or size. While your own business may have the necessary internal compliance measures in place, your organisation could still be liable if a business partner engages in unlawful conduct. Not all suppliers recognise the necessity of managing their compliance measures - some may lack sufficient resources and others simply do not have the appropriate training.

Our training programme ‘Compliance Basics for Business Partners’ delivers a common ground of understanding compliance and communicates your values to suppliers and business partners. Following a short intro video, which can also be used separately for accompanying communication, the programme provides an overview on the most important compliance topics in a sophisticated, and high-quality manner. Clients can select the necessary lessons according to risk profiles of their business partners. The training is designed to be customized to your supplier guidelines or Codes of Conduct.

‘Compliance Basics for Business Partners’ our first facelifted training. Numerous changes to the look & feel provide an optimized learner experience.
