In April 2019, the DOJ published its Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs guidance — a significant expansion of the earlier guidance published in 2017. With more discussion regarding what effective compliance programs should achieve and what prosecutors want to see from companies under regulatory scrutiny, it is a valuable resource for compliance officers and directors who want to ensure their compliance programs satisfy regulator expectations.
