Compliance directors are responsible for ensuring that corporations or agencies conform to all rules, regulations, and laws relevant to their functions. For example, compliance directors at medical insurance companies analyze policies and practices to guarantee they adhere to state and federal Medicare and Medicaid standards and to state and federal laws related to treatment and patient care. In the banking industry, compliance directors analyze investments and policies to ensure their legal and regulatory status is in proper order, and they offer risk assessments of possible legal and regulatory issues that may arise in the future. If a violation does occur, compliance directors are responsible for managing and correcting the problem as well as instituting policy to eliminate the lapse in regulatory compliance.
