United States: Justice Department Adds New Detail to Compliance Evaluation Guidance

The Justice Department on Monday said it had refined a document outlining how it assesses programs developed by companies to prevent their employees from violating the law.

The department first released guidance on how it evaluates corporate compliance programs in 2017 and has updated the document several times since, most recently last year. The version released Monday leaves much of the substance of earlier versions unchanged, an official said, adding that the updates are in keeping with the agency’s efforts to improve its policies and provide transparency.

“Today’s revised guidance on the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs reflects additions based on our own experience and important feedback from the business and compliance communities,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division said in a statement.
