WHAT WE DO
A risk assessment is the foundation for an effective compliance program. A risk assessment gives you the ability to match your resources to your main risks. BHGCS professionals will conduct a risk assessment that identifies your general risks and determines your exposure to specific regulatory risks such as anti-corruption, trade, and other common risks.
CODE AND POLICY DEVELOPMENT
Codes and policies build on the foundation of an effective compliance program. We can help you design a Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and develop policies that cover your key risks, including:
Conflicts of Interest
Corporate Social Responsibility
Other Risks Associated with the Maritime Industry
THIRD PARTY COMPLIANCE
Many enterprises use outside vendors, contractors, or service providers. These third parties can expose your company to compliance risk as well. The enterprise must verify that all third party contractors have implemented a comparable compliance program. BHGCS will help you identify your high-risk third parties, conduct due diligence reviews, manage red flags, and protect your interests in third-party contracts.
Even the most conscientious and committed company will run into situations where violations have occurred. If you identify a problem, the experienced staff at BHGCS will help you fully investigate the situation, address any resulting problems, and make the necessary adjustments to minimize the possibility of a future recurrence.
COMPLIANCE PROGRAM DESIGN
Global law enforcement agencies require that compliance programs contain “adequate procedures” to address your key risks. At BHGCS we understand that every company is unique and requires a customized solution for addressing compliance and regulatory issues. Together, we can create manageable solutions that fit your size, operations, geographical footprint, and risk exposure.
Efficient compliance programs are automated and documented, but these solutions can be costly and cumbersome. BHGCS can provide you with a comprehensive compliance solution that includes:
Employee hotline for anonymous reporting
Online training delivery and training record maintenance
Due diligence records
Investigation case management
TRAINING, COMMUNICATIONS & EXECUTIVE BRIEFINGS
Your company executives and employees must understand the expectations and requirements for running a compliant business. BHGCS will help you establish a training and communication program to empower your employees to make ethical, compliant business and operational decisions. We can provide customized risk exposure briefings for executives and governance bodies, in-depth training for your employees, and communication materials that will reinforce compliance principles.
