Compliance Day 2022
29 September | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Hybrid conference | Free event
On the eve of entry into force of the reform of the Commercial Company Code concerning corporate groups and the challenges related to the (non-) implementation of the Whistleblower Protection Directive, the 6th edition of the Compliance Day will be devoted to:
- the realities of performing the compliance function in Polish organizations;
- the specifics of compliance management in corporate groups;
- internal proceedings after the entry into force of the holding law (amendments to the Commercial Company Code).
10:00 - 10:15 INTRODUCTION
10:15 - 11:45 | The reality of the compliance officer's work in Polish organisations
There is a lot of talk in the compliance community about legislation that has not yet come into force and it is not known whether it will (protection of whistleblowers), or about the assumptions of the draft law on collective entities, which has not been amended for many years. This time we want to leave these topics behind and discuss the reality of compliance management in Poland.
With our guests we will talk about:
- What is the daily work of a compliance officer in Polish organisations?
- Who is the compliance officer, what is his/her empowerment and "efficiency"?
- What is the officer's responsibility?
- What problems and challenges does he/she encounter in compliance management?
- Are there perceptible differences between national and international approaches to compliance management?
Moderator Janusz Tomczak and invited guests:
- Justyna Hamada, Manager in Forensic and Integrity Team, responsible for Compliance and Ethics, EY;
- Bartłomiej Wiśniewski, Compliance manager in Scania Polska SA;
- Paweł Bronisław Ludwiczak, attorney-at-law, blogger, compliance expert;
- dr Ewelina Rutkowska, advocate, Ph.D. in law, who a few months ago defended her doctoral thesis on compliance in sports.
11:45 - 12:15 - Coffee break
12:15 - 13:45 | Compliance management in multinational groups
Managing the risk of non-compliance in multi-entity corporations is a major challenge. The idea of setting up a global compliance system and harmonising standards does not always work in local realities, both due to differences in law and different corporate cultures in different jurisdictions.
- How to effectively manage compliance at group level?
- What can be done to make 'global' policies work realistically?
- Can a common (group) whistleblowing channel fulfil its purpose?
- Is the establishment of a centralised team of specialists to clarify undesirable developments the optimal solution?
we will discuss during panel II.
Moderator Łukasz Kuczkowski and invited guests:
- Agnieszka Gawrońska-Malec, Head of Volvo Group Whistle and Global Investigations in Volvo Group;
- Jakub Staśkiewicz, Legal & Compliance Director, Data Protection Officer in Vision Express;
- dr Dominik Wolski, Chief Compliance Officer, Dyrektor Działu Prawnego in Jeronimo Martins Polska;
- Krzysztof Mazurek, Deputy General Counsel, Head of Legal Europe, Director of Global Compliance in Precision Medicine Group.
13:45 - 14:30 - Lunch
14:30 - 16:00 | Why should we pay more attention to internal investigations?
We believe that the regulatory changes coming into force, primarily in the area of company law, will affect the frequency and professionalisation of internal investigations.
- Will the reality of investigations in Poland change, and in what way, following the introduction of the group legislation?
- Will the broader powers of supervisory boards have an impact on the model of conducting internal investigations?
- What are the challenges of conducting investigations in a capital group?
will be discussed during panel III.
Moderator Damian Tokarczyk and invited guests:
- Marcin Kossowski, Expert in Crime and Economic Fraud, partner in Questa;
- Olga Czarnocka, Lead of Ethics & Compliance, Senior Compliance Manager, Legal Division in TVN Grupa Discovery;
- dr Dominika Dörre-Kolasa, attorney-at-law, partner in Raczkowski.
