TENDANCES : PROGRAMMES DE CONFORMITE - DROIT DE LA CONCURRENCE – ENTREPRISES - CIRCONSTANCE ATTENUANTE – ETUDE PORTANT SUR 16 PAYS DE L’UNION EUROPEENNE

Best practices for compliance programs : Results of an international survey

Les entreprises devraient toutes mettre en place des programmes de conformité au droit de la concurrence pour assurer le respect de ces règles complexes par leurs salariés.
