Paris Counsel Cécile Terret was interviewed June 20 in Daf-Mag on the urgency for companies to comply with Sapin II. As part of this law, the French Anti-corruption Agency (AFA) will start imposing heavy fines. Businesses will find that nonconformity poses a high risk to their image, while early compliance will bring a significant competitive advantage. Terret notes that well-designed risk mapping makes it possible to better understand and rationalize a company’s activities. “This raises questions that go further, such as the interest of staying in a particular country,” she said.
