Prevention of criminal risks

Criminal risk prevention models are an exempting or mitigating element of the criminal liability of the legal person and therefore of the administrators. Companies must implement an effective crime detection and prevention model according to the nature of their activities and the corresponding risks associated with them. The implementation of a Criminal Risk Prevention Model that meets the requirements established by law,  the following processes must be met:

  1. Identify the activities in which crimes can be discussed.
  2. Establish the protocols or procedures that specify the process of formation of the will of the legal person, of decision-making and of the execution thereof in relation to those.
  3. Establish models of management of financial resources adequate to prevent the commission of crimes.
  4. Impose the obligation to report possible risks and breaches to the body in charge of monitoring the operation of the model.
  5. Establish a disciplinary system that adequately sanctions non-compliance with the measures established by the model.
  6. Review the model periodically and, where appropriate, its eventual modification.

These models must be accompanied by supervision and diligent surveillance of their operation, always leaving evidence of all the mechanisms and records of the system for their use as proof of compliance. Outsourcing will ensure independence and transparency throughout the process.
