Compliance mechanisms consist of internalizing in certain companies the obligation to achieve general interest goals set by public authorities.
These control the Ex Ante reorganization that this implies for these companies and sanction Ex Post the possible inadequacy of the companies, which have thus become transparent. This new mode of governance establishes a continuum between Regulation, Supervision, Compliance (2017) and renews the links between Companies, Regulators and Judges (2018).
In each case, the political dimension of Compliance appears.
This is why today we must think about "building the Europe of Compliance". The contributions of this work have as a common object to reflect on the way in which Europe not only receives an initially American corpus but also to reconstruct it, even to think it differently. Particularly in that it fits into the European project itself, supports it, consolidates and promotes it, can thus make Compliance Europe an example for a world that swear and de facto cannot be reduced to the United States.
It is therefore a scientific and technical subject, but also a political project, integrated in the perspective of European construction, not only economic (in its articulation with the Banking Union and the Capital Markets Union ) but still, even above all, integrating goals which go beyond this circulation and convergence of interests to concern themselves with goals such as the preservation of the environment or the concern for people.
It is a matter of state. In this, Compliance Law, as developed by the United States, is certainly a model but can be exceeded by a higher ambition, which Europe can carry and which can carry Europe.
