The challenges of compliance in international trade are numerous and have become a priority in recent years and months.
The fight against corruption, money laundering and the financing of terrorism, the need to prevent nuclear, bacteriological and chemical proliferation and economic sanctions and embargoes, often used as instruments of political, legal and economic domination, and the rapid emergence dual-use technologies, have made a structured and multifunctional consideration essential in companies exporting goods, technologies and services.
Companies today find themselves having to take into account many constantly evolving laws and regulations and make them operational in their globalized value chains, in order to control their reputational, financial and criminal risks and those of their managers and employees.
