The FCPA Blog’s contributing editor, Tom Fox, is one of the leading writers, thinkers and commentators on the nuts and bolts of compliance. His practical advice is now available in one volume, The Complete Compliance Handbook.
In this single 500-page book, Tom brings together the top ideas, topics, and techniques to incorporate into a compliance program.
It’s a step-by-step guide to the design, creation, implementation of or enhancement to a compliance program.
He begins with a chapter on 31 days to a better compliance program.
Tom devotes sections to each of the Ten Hallmarks of an Effective Compliance Program, together with the new requirement for a root cause analysis of any compliance event.
He considers ten key elements for any successful compliance program — including the role of the Board of Directors, how to operationalize your compliance program, the role of internal audit and internal controls, an internal reporting mechanism and investigations, management of third- parties, and much more.
In the book’s forward, Tom says:
I wanted to write a one-volume book which would provide the compliance practitioner with the most recent information on what constitutes the most current thinking on best practices, from a wide variety of sources. Over the past year, I set out on an exploration to do just that. With the help of many people, I have been able to write this work that lays out how to design, create, implement and enhance a best practices compliance program.
If you want one volume to guide you in operationalizing compliance, this is it.
Tom — known as the Compliance Evangelist — has now written 15 books on compliance, leadership and business ethics.
As readers of the FCPA Blog know from his frequent and popular posts here, Tom’s writing is always engaging and informative. His style is suited for any skill level of the compliance practitioner.
The Complete Compliance Handbook is the culmination of Tom’s decade of experience in the compliance profession. We’re sure this single volume will become a standard “nuts and bolts” text on compliance.
The Complete Compliance Handbook is available from Amazon here.
Autographed copies are available here.
