They conduct internal audits and set up monitoring mechanisms in order to detect violations and determine corrective measures. Compliance Officers are responsible for investigating reported instances of non-compliance and, if necessary, employing an appropriate subsequent course of action. They also implement written policies and procedures, and other standards of conduct. They regularly evaluate and update company codes of conduct to ensure compliance and relevance.

Compliance Officers usually hold at least a Bachelor’s degree in a related field, though Master’s degrees are often preferred, and have a high level of integrity.
