Watch our video «MVCOMPLIANCE. Doing what's right». 

‘Compliance’ at its most basic means to comply with the legislation to applicable companies' business activities. It is a set of standards and rules governing the way in which companies should run their businesses, conduct their activities and operate within their market.

Compliance, however, goes far beyond just ‘strictly’ complying with the law. This is the reason compliance is so important.

We have seen a recent surge in new laws and regulations seeking to address social, environmental, and ethical issues that companies were previously free to ignore, including equality in employment, harassment, business ethics, social responsibility, and personal data use, etc.

Compliance is now a key-matter and you cannot stay on the side-lines of this change. It is time for your company to get involved and avoid social and legal sanctions, loss of competitiveness when it comes to attracting the best employees, loss of customers and markets and lack of access to external finance.

Organizations must be aware of the need to gather standards and internal procedures, inform and, above all, train their employees on good practices to be distinguished in a competitive environment and avoid heavy legal sanctions as well as reputational damages.

Considering these new challenges, MACEDO VITORINO launched MVCOMPLIANCE. The aim of MVCOMPLIANCE is to help clients to do the right thing.
