Compliance audit

Independent evaluation of the implementation of corporate policies and standards aimed at ensuring the sustainable development of your company, compliance with applicable laws and regulatory requirements.

According to the compliance checklist and specific procedures agreed with the client, SCHNEIDER GROUP consultants will:

  • Review local compliance with head office policies, regulations, and standards to minimise risks, increase efficiency and ensure long-term sustainable business development.
  • Review compliance with legislation and regulatory requirements (e.g., anti-corruption and anti-money laundering laws).
  • Audit procurement (including supplier due diligence) and contracting processes.
  • Check compliance with data handling, confidentiality and access policies.
  • Monitor implementation of your corporate code of ethics.

What you get

We will audit local business units according to head office guidelines and prepare a report to confirm compliance at group level. If any deviations are detected, we will document them and propose practical solution to minimise risks. We can undertake both one-time and regular compliance audits.
Together with you we will analyse the adequacy of corporate policies to ensure compliance with local laws and regulators, minimization of risks and successful development of the local unit. If necessary, we will develop additional standards and regulations or adapt head office policies and procedures.
We will prepare all necessary documentation for the entry into force of corporate compliance policies and local regulations. We will train your staff (on-site or remotely), and ensure staff are familiarised with relevant orders and necessary signatures.

Why Schneider group

In the course of the audit we rely on the experience of previous client projects, as well as on the experience of developing compliance policies for your company’s needs. Not only do we identify possible non-compliance, but also propose feasible solutions for its elimination.
We involve experts from SCHNEIDER GROUP’s legal practice, specializing in the relevant areas of law in a given country to take full account of local legal specifics.
We focus on your tasks and deadlines. During the audit, we follow the formats and instructions from your head office and prepare a report in either Ukrainian, Russian, English or German. We carry out urgent checks and change the focus of investigation in the course of the project, if necessary.
We analyse the risks of potential legislative violations in the global development of your business processes, such as when transferring certain areas of accounting to another country. We then prepare recommendations on how to minimise these risks.
