The administration of a company in Romanian business environment comes not only with economic and regulatory challenges, but also with an increased amount of issues related to governance, especially in the case of local branches/subsidiaries of international organizations. The majority of these issues are related to integrity and security of the management of a company. Thus, in order to prevent the costs associated with corrupt business practices, it is recommended to implement at organizational and operational level certain compliance procedure in regards to AML and ABAC legislation. Our presentation will address these topics not only from a regulatory perspective, but also with reference to practical cases from recent jurisprudence.

Administrarea unei companii in mediul de afaceri din Romania vine nu doar cu provocari economice si de ordin legislativ, ci si cu din ce in ce mai multe probleme care privesc conducerea unei companii, in special in cazul reprezentantelor locale ale unor organizatii internationale. In marea lor majoritate, aceste probleme sunt legate de integritatea si securitatea managementului unei companii. Astfel, pentru a preveni aparitia unor costuri asociate practicilor de business corupte, se recomanda implementarea la nivel organizational si operational a unor proceduri de conformitate cu referinta la legislatia AML si ABAC. Prezentarea noastra va aborda aceste subiecte nu doar din perspectiva reglementarilor existente, ci si cu referire la cazuri practice din jurisprudenta recenta.
