Any compliance program worth its salt should be designed to prevent, detect and correct incidents of non-compliance. But the work involved to design such a compliance program isn’t so clear cut.

However, in June of this year, The U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) guidance on the evaluation of corporate compliance programs provided a significant amount of insight on what they expect a fully effective and compliant incident management workflow to look like. From this guidance, most compliance professionals were provided a roadmap with pretty thorough definitions for putting in place the proper elements to accurately report, investigate, track, and resolve incidents of non-compliance in a timely, and trackable way.

But even if you had the time to read the entire update, parsing exactly what the guidance set forth by the DOJ means, can be a task unto itself. Which is where we come in. We love reading and re-reading these things, and providing our audience with only the most important takeaways for you to focus on. To that end, we’ll be hosting a new webinar on Wednesday, October 21 at 1 PM ET titled, “How to Comply with the DOJ’s Guidance on Incident Reporting and Management,” where along with Remo Peshkepia, our Solutions Engineer, I’ll focus on the DOJ’s guidance document and discuss some new best practices, including:

  • Reporting Hotlines (or Intake of Reports) of Potential Non-compliance
  • Determining Which Complaints or Red Flags Merit Further Investigation
  • Applying Timing Metrics to Ensure Responsiveness to Reported Incidents
  • Identifying Changes to Reduce the Risk Recurring Issues

And, for those of you in attendance, you’ll also be able to receive 1.2 CCB CEU credits from the HCCA. To learn more, go ahead and click the link below. Hope to see you there!
