The ICA Compliance Awards Europe return for 2023 to recognise outstanding talent in financial crime prevention and regulatory compliance

The International Compliance Association (ICA) – the leading professional body for the global regulatory and financial crime compliance community and part of Wilmington plc – is excited to announce that the ICA Compliance Awards Europe are back for a brand new edition in 2023.

Scheduled to take place on 27 April 2023, 6:30PM (BST) at the Hilton London Bankside, UK, the ICA Awards are the UK's only awards recognising teams and individuals across the financial crime prevention and regulatory compliance community. Building on their tremendous success in 2022, the Awards are back by popular demand, featuring 18 categories in 2023 designed to recognise the initiatives and achievements of the compliance community over the past 12-18 months. The categories are split across four key themes, including celebrating teams, recognising individuals, praising collaboration, and showcasing innovation.

The Awards are free to enter and open to businesses, professionals and clients working and based in Europe. With the deadline for submission fast approaching, the compliance community in Europe must hurry  and send their entries no later than the 25th of November 2022 for the chance to get recognised for their achievement and grow their credibility globally. Winning an ICA Award, an internationally recognised association and training provider, will help to not only build your reputation, but it will also shape your career for years to come and strengthen the credibility of compliance within your business.

Selecting the winners for 2023 will be an esteemed judging panel comprised of senior compliance and financial crime prevention leaders who will look for outstanding achievements, innovation, collaboration, and excellence across individual submissions, team projects and business initiatives in this year’s winning entries. The judges will assess all entries based on a robust set of criteria and look for evidence-based examples to back up the most successful Awards submissions.

ICA President, Bill Howarth, commented: ‘We look forward to welcoming you to the ICA Compliance Awards Europe 2023 in London next year to celebrate excellence in financial crime prevention and compliance. The industry professionals, businesses and teams who work in this important field all have a vital role to play in keeping our societies safe and they deserve visibility and recognition for their outstanding work day in and day out. As part of the Awards, we hope to provide a platform to reward their achievements, network with their peers, share knowledge and exchange best practice in innovation, collaboration, technology adoption, team and individual performance.’
