Our Compliance Team has extensive experience in providing a wide range of services spanning numerous areas:

  • corporate governance and transactions with related parties

  • health and safety in the workplace
  • the environment
  • anti-money laundering
  • anti-bribery
  • ISO management systems related to monitoring compliance risks.

Our clients range from small businesses to multinational enterprises operating in a broad variety of sectors: entertainment and show business, biomedical industry, local public transport, integrated logistics and trucking, staff leasing, factoring, fashion, IT, TLC, food and beverage, the non-profit sector and public utilities.

The services provided by the compliance team include compliance audit projects, gap analysis, due diligence and risk assessment, as well as the design, development and updating of organizational, management and control models pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that each service we deliver is tailored to their specific needs.

We are also members of the Supervisory Boards of both domestic and international companies.

We develop compliance risk control systems by applying international best practices such as ISO standards on environmental management systems (ISO 14001), health and safety at work (ISO 45001), anti-bribery (ISO 37001), information security (ISO 27001), and compliance management (ISO 37301) also for the purposes of certification of compliance with these standards.

We also deliver training through conferences and seminars on topics such as administrative responsibility of entities, privacy and data protection and ISO standards that may impact on the management of corporate compliance.

We are data protection officers (DPO) in compliance with the EU regulation on behalf of both domestic and multinational companies.

Our approach: the integrated compliance model.

Compliance for us is not only a formal concept but above all goes to the heart of the matter: it means addressing the corporate oversight system to ensure that objectives are achieved and maintained, adopting effective and lasting solutions integrated with the company's business processes, thus avoiding unnecessary burdens and costly duplications.

In order to best support our Clients in achieving these results, we apply a methodological approach based on an optimum mix of skills, professionalism and experience and developed through an integrated perspective on the organizational and managerial tools that monitor compliance risks in the company.

Because of this, our projects (compliance audit, gap analysis, due diligence, risk assessment) are able to ensure that the different skills required - legal, managerial, technical – are brought to bear in an integrated manner to provide an effective specialist service. The increasingly complex context in which we operate requires the continuous acquisition of multidisciplinary hybrid skills, combining legal expertise and organizational, managerial and technological competences.

In order to address this complexity in the best possible way, SZA has also developed partnerships with the leading players in information security and artificial intelligence.

This approach also distinguishes the methodology we adopt for the updating of 231 Organizational Models to mitigate business risk and to ensure the full transparency and compliance of our clients' businesses.
