International Operations Audits

While some companies build global compliance procedures into their business operations from the very beginning, the more common situation is that the decision to implement a formal compliance program is not made until the company already has some level of international activities.  At that point, the first action that should be taken is to conduct a comprehensive audit of the company’s international operations to identify the business and legal risks that will arise in connection with existing and proposed cross-border activities and transactions.  This report outlines the steps that should be taken to conduct an international operations audit as the initial step in establishing adequate policies and procedures for complying with domestic and foreign laws, including US export control, anti-boycott, and foreign corrupt practices laws.
