Ruihua Chen, Law Professor and Ph.D. Supervisor of Peking University, took “Corporate Compliance and Corporate Governance” as the theme and shared it from three dimensions: the definition of compliance, the classification of compliance risk and the mode of effective compliance management. In the process of enterprise operation and development, there are a variety of compliance risks, such as strategic risks, operational risks and financial risks. In essence, corporate compliance is a corporate governance method based on risk prevention and control. Since the introduction of compliance supervision by regulatory departments in China, effective compliance management has basically formed two institutional models — daily compliance management model and crisis handling compliance rectification model.
Professor Chen said that the highest level of corporate compliance should be to avoid external supervision and achieve “self-regulation” of corporations. To a certain extent, the self-rectification initiated by corporations after the occurrence of violations is consistent with the compliance rectification externally promoted by law enforcement agencies. For corporations that have established a mature daily compliance management system, self-rectification is enough to solve the problem of improving the compliance system, while those that have not established an effective daily compliance system need external promotion from law enforcement agencies. The combination and complement each other can jointly promote different corporations to achieve the goal of improving the compliance management system.
Zhongyi Zhu, Associate Professor of Wang Jian Law School of Suzhou University, took “Exploring the Construction of Corporate Administrative Compliance Guidance List System” as the theme and shared the significance, main content and future development of the construction of corporate administrative compliance guidance list system.
Legal environment provides an important guarantee for corporations to accurately predict the consequences of their behaviors. The establishment of the administrative compliance guidance list system is an important measure to optimize the rule of law business environment. Corporations do not know enough about the legal system of administrative management, so the establishment of the compliance guidance list system can help corporations to know the law, abide by the law, and avoid breaking the law. Specifically, the system may include administrative compliance matters, compliance suggestions, routine illegal behavior performance, legal basis and liability for illegal behavior, risk grade and guidance department. In the future, the list system can be implemented in the whole city and the scope of the list can be gradually expanded. Optimize compliance suggestions to help corporations better absorb and adopt; The contents of the list shall be timely revised and improved based on administrative practices.
