It seems that today, there is hardly any organization that is not exposed to increasing regulation alongside significant non-compliance sanctions.
Prudent management of regulatory requirements and implementation of compliance norms within the corporate culture is one of the prominent challenges corporate managements are currently confronting.
The professional team at BDO Consulting Group's Risk Advisory Services (RAS) is comprised of law professionals and accountants, supported by expert legal advisers, offering close guidance to organizations in implementing processes to ensure regulatory compliance.
The regulatory services provided by our Group include:
- Administrative enforcement
In February 2011, the Israeli Administrative Enforcement Law came into effect. The law constitutes an amendment to a number of laws, primarily the Securities Law, enabling the Enforcement Committee to impose a series of administrative sanctions for violations that do not constitute criminal offenses. The RAS enforcement experts of BDO Consulting Group are vastly experienced in assisting organizations with properly implementing the requirements of the law as well as controls designed to limit exposures identified as compliance risks.
- Implementation of the law to increase enforcement of labor law
- Labor laws compliance risk survey
