Compliance

Leonardo Compliance ensures the guidance, coordination and control of the initiatives related to the areas of Trade and Business Compliance, also through the drafting and updating of internal regulatory system documents. 


Trade Compliance oversees the implementation of the Trade Compliance Program interacting with the competent authorities with respect to the import and export of defence products and dual-use goods ensuring the performance of all national and international administrative duties.

Business Compliance ensures the performance of due diligence activities and reputational verifications with reference to the appointment of Commercial Advisors/Sales Promoters. Furthermore, it manages the relevant contractual documentation.


Through the Corporate and Divisional structures, Compliance ensures an adequate control of the legal risks, aimed at preventing behaviours not compliant to the rules.  In coordination with the other relevant  company functions, it supports the training activities leading to a constant increasing compliance culture, contributing to the definition of an Effective Compliance Program inspired to a Zero Tolerance approach against conducts in violation of the Company values.
Compliance ensures adequate information flows in favour of the Top Management,  Governing Bodies and first tier executives, updating periodically the Control and Risks Committee and the Board of Statutory Auditors.
 

Compliance Council

The Compliance Council constitutes one of the pillars of Leonardo Compliance Programme. Its main objective is to promote a corporate culture founded on the observance of the rules and on the Company’s values. Compliance with the law, transparency and correct management conduct, good faith, trust and cooperation with the stakeholders are crucial to compete efficiently and fairly in the market.

This event is held annually and involves the Top Management of the company, the first-level management and the key-persons and represents an essential occasion of exchange of views among the company’s different realities and to raise awareness of employees about the risks in conducting business. 

The involvement of subject matter experts and representatives of the Institutions characterizes the Council as a training experience, focused on the relevant national and international rules and the best practices.

“Yes, We…Council”

 

The fourth edition of the Compliance Council, to be held next October, will focus on "Integrity in Business" as the common link connecting the planned sessions, inspired by one of the Values of Leonardo’s Leadership Framework. 
The event will consist of an institutional day in Rome - on October 30th -, divisional sessions - in the period between October 7th and 16th - and a day dedicated to the Italian and foreign Subsidiaries - on October 29th. 
With the aim of raising awareness of our employees – at all levels of the company – on the importance of the compliance with the rules for effective business management, each meeting will address issues related to the business processes, to the interactions among the various functions and to the associated risks, in particular the reputational risks. The approach that will be adopted in this edition aims at giving wide emphasis on the effectiveness of the actions and, to such regard, further innovations will be announced in the period preceding the next Compliance Council. 

For each day of the Compliance Council there will be speeches and contributions by distinguished experts external to the Company, from Academic and Forensic environment, as well as Anti-corruption training sessions for all the participants, held by the manager in charge of Anti-corruption function, aimed at both disseminating information on normative aspects and training on practical risk situations.
