Compliance with laws, internal regulations and contractual obligations is a precondition for operating in a legally “safe” business environment.
Our compliance objectives are aligned with RTL Group’s values and business objectives: there is an ethics case in compliance since the Group is perceived on the adherence to its values, which requires compliance at all levels. There is also a clear business case since non-compliance can have an impact on RTL Group's reputation, impede its ability to achieve strategic objectives and therewith economic success. Finally, there is a legal case since demonstrating the existence of a sound compliance programme can prevent management and employees from legal liability.
The RTL Group compliance team is in charge of the implementation and further developments of RTL Group’s Compliance Management System and provides support and assistance on compliance matters.
