Ecija advises on the implementation of a criminal compliance system
Ecija has advised Acuamed on the implementation of a criminal compliance system and external management of its whistleblowing channel as an anti-corruption measure.
César Zárate (pictured on the right) and Juan E. Tordesillas (pictured on the left), partners of the firm, lead this project. Both of them belong as partner to the compliance department.
The state-owned company Aguas de las Cuencas Mediterráneas (Acuamed) has awarded Ecija the renewal and improvement of its compliance and criminal risk prevention system, which also includes the external management of its whistleblowing channel in order to comply with all the guarantees set out in the new whistleblowing regulations.
The objective is to update Acuamed’s internal regulations related to compliance – risk map, code of ethics and conduct and anti-fraud plan – as a key element in its fight against corruption.
