Why an International Compliance training cycle?
In parallel with the globalization of the economy and seen as a response by national and international authorities to financial crises and scandals, Compliance is asserting itself as one of the pillars of banking activity around the world.
Due to the international desire for unification, both at the level of international institutions such as the Basel Committee or the FATF, as well as regional institutions such as the European Union or African regional institutions to mention only these examples, an international cycle based on the fundamental principles is relevant because these same principles and recommendations are found in the majority of national legislation.
Our training starts from these international principles and puts them in perspective in relation to European rules (Directives mainly and EBA Guidelines mostly). During the sessions, the link to National regulation is made in order to stick as much as possible to the local practice and its future development.
Therefore, on the basis of knowledge documentation that is handled to trainees beforehand, we deploy a cycle of 2 modules of 5 days each which put into practice the concepts and give them meaning.

The conference will be held in English.
