What is ISO 19600?
ISO 19600 provides guidelines for establishing, developing, implementing, managing and improving a compliance management system within an organization. This standard is applicable to all sizes, nature, and complexity of company’s business activities. This will allow organizations to encounter all their regulatory requirements and manage their operational risks with one uniform compliance framework. Compliance Management is more than just a legal requirement; it is also a bound to meet the stakeholder’s needs and expectations regardless of industry.
By being certified against ISO 19600, the organization will be capable to detect all existing compliance gaps and implement appropriate corrective actions by following ISO 19600 recommendations.

Compliance is important for your reputation and career perspectives.
