A large part of my practice relates to competition/antitrust and advertising law compliance for companies and associations. In this regard, while the Canadian Competition Bureau has a Corporate Compliance Programs Bulletin that includes an outline of its recommended basic elements for effective competition compliance programs for companies and trade associations, this new International Chamber (ICC) “Antitrust Compliance Toolkit” caught my eye, given that compliance programs can, and typically are, customized for particular business and risk issues.
Launched last week at the 5th ICC Roundtable on Competition Policy in Warsaw, the ICC’s Toolkit includes chapters on the following 11 topics: compliance imbedded as company culture and policy; compliance organization and resources; risk identification and assessment; antitrust compliance know-how; antitrust concerns-handling systems; handling internal investigations; disciplinary action; antitrust due diligence; compliance certification; compliance incentives; and monitoring and improvement.
For a copy of the Toolkit see: ICC Antitrust Compliance Toolkit.
