A number of specific duties correspond to these broad roles. For example, chief compliance officers develop and revise all company policies and standards to outline ethical, safe, and efficient procedures. They review and revise companies’ codes of personal conduct. If there are any compliance issues, they work with the appropriate groups (such as employee services or risk management) to investigate and act upon findings. They also act as independent reviewers to investigate employee allegations of company misconduct. Chief compliance officers must constantly work to find and resolve areas of compliance risk. They also act as an informational resource regarding all of these activities for members of the board, other executives, and senior management.
At minimum, chief compliance officers hold bachelor’s degrees in business; far more commonly, they hold either master’s or doctoral degrees in auditing, regulatory affairs, accounting, or a related field.
