ICA Announces New Partnership to Develop Best Compliance Practice in the Czech Republic 

The partnership comes at a time of increased scrutiny of ongoing efforts in the country to prevent financial crime following FATF’s 2019 Mutual Evaluation Report

13 February 2020 – International Compliance Association (ICA), the leading professional body for the global regulatory and financial crime compliance community, is pleased to announce it has signed a new, strategic partnership with the Compliance Academya private educational institution for compliance, risk and governance professionals, to develop best compliance practice in the Czech Republic.  

As part of the agreement, ICA will offer its full suite of accredited qualifications covering financial crime prevention, governance, risk and compliance, and anti money laundering to Compliance Academy members.

In line with its efforts to help advance professional education in compliance and empower global professionals to manage risk more effectively, ICA will also offer two ICA Diploma scholarships each year to Compliance Academy members. ICA Diplomas are flagship qualifications undertaken by thousands of compliance and AML managers all over the world.

The agreement will help meet the organisations’ shared values to help companies conduct business in the right way and grow through the adoption of internationally recognised best practice by going beyond just meeting regulatory requirements. Furthermore, it will provide an invaluable opportunity for financial services firms and other regulated sectors in the Czech Republic to upskill their employees and safeguard their business from criminal, financial and reputational risk.

The partnership comes at a time of increased scrutiny of ongoing efforts in the country to prevent financial crime following FATF’s 2019 Mutual Evaluation Report. 

Helen Langton, CEO, ICA, commented: “At ICA, we put the value of education and continuous professional development as enablers of sustainable business growth at the heart of everything we do, and I am especially delighted to be collaborating with the Compliance Academy to help develop the competencies and capabilities of financial crime and compliance professionals and their firms in the region.”

Michal Moroz, Co-founder of Compliance Academy, added: “Compliance Academy was launched with a clear mission in mind – to bring together professionals from various areas of expertise in order to cultivate the local business environment, promote ethical and just standards for the fight against corruption, and attract new talent to this rapidly growing industry and we are excited to be working with ICA, a professional association that aligns with this ethos.“
