EVIA Compliance Framework

EVIA host a number of forums throughout the year covering key issues in regulation and compliance.

Under the framework of a standing monthly compliance forum, there are both regular activity specific sub-committees and ad-hoc work streams which are task specific.

They exist either for information sharing and to build out process and procedural standardisation, or to create specific and disclosed policy frameworks, protocols and practice standards.

The meetings are more usually in person than teleconferences and are attended by sector leads within member firms, together with invited host regulators, governments, agencies, policy makers, audit and law firms where appropriate.
