New IACA Seminar on Compliance in the Eurasian Economic Union: Register Now!

IACA is welcoming applications for a new two-day seminar on Anti-Corruption Compliance, AML/CFT and Sanctions in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU): Modern Trends and Challenges, which will take place on 17- 18 June 2019  at our campus in Laxenburg/Vienna, Austria.

Implementation of compliance programmes in foreign jurisdictions is always challenging. Companies should consider local laws and regulations, existing risks, business environment, values, and cultural specifics.

The IACA seminar will give an opportunity to get insights on modern challenges and trends in anti-corruption compliance and AML in the Eurasian Economic Union. Participants will discuss regional typologies of corruption offences and related money laundering, learn how to identify suspicious partners or business models. Experts from the field will share their experience in localizing compliance programmes, creating incentives for local partners to cooperate in preventing corruption, conducting due diligence, identification of beneficial owners, and risk management. Various sanction lists can create additional risks for companies and will be taken into consideration. Special attention will be paid to the effective compliance solutions designed for the region.

The seminar will consist of lectures, interactive classroom and panel discussion, and networking opportunities.

Professionals from around the world who are involved with the business sector in compliance, anti-corruption, law, audit, or related fields are encouraged to register.

Participants will subsequently join IACA’s alumni network of anti-corruption and compliance professionals in 161 countries and jurisdictions.

Some discounts on the tuition fee are available under IACA’s fee discount scheme.

New IACA Seminar on Protecting Whistleblowers: Handling their Concerns: Register Now!

IACA is welcoming applications for a new two-day seminar on Protecting Whistleblower: Handling their Concerns, which will take place on 24- 25 June 2019  at our campus in Laxenburg/Vienna, Austria.

Whistleblowers are often the first to see wrongdoing occur and can allow organisations to respond pro-actively before the damaging effects of corruption cause irreparable harm. Whistleblowers take professional and personal risks in coming forward, possible retaliation and isolation from colleagues and the potential loss of career if their concern is not well received. Private sector organisations are increasingly establishing whistleblowing procedures. Many whistleblower protection laws in different jurisdictions now place obligations upon the recipients of concerns to protect whistleblowers. The EU Directive on the protection of whistleblowers will place requirements on many organisations to establish whistleblowing procedures. In addition, the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act and ISO:37001 (anti-bribery systems) requires organisations to establish systems allowing employees raise concerns anonymously. Organisations are increasingly looking towards electronic whistleblowing platforms as a way of providing a safe space to raise concerns.

The purpose of the seminar is to provide explanation and expert analysis of the current international developments on whistleblowing protection and the impact of these developments for states and organisations. Participants will then hear insights on how whistleblowing concerns are handled in practice from the perspective of a senior compliance professional and a representative from a regulatory authority.

The seminar will consist of lectures, interactive classroom and panel discussion, and networking opportunities.

Professionals from around the world who are involved with the business sector in compliance, anti-corruption, law, audit, or related fields are encouraged to register.

Participants will subsequently join IACA’s alumni network of anti-corruption and compliance professionals in 161 countries and jurisdictions.

The registration deadline is 14 June, and some discounts on the tuition fee are available under IACA’s fee discount scheme.
