Compliance and Regulation Law bilingual Dictionnary

Professional body

by Marie-Anne Frison-Roche


Professions play a key role in self-regulatory systems, especially the liberal professions, as soon as they are respected by companies and professionals. Professions are increasingly institutionalized, either by orders or by professions, which form networks or international associations.

In this way, unlike the States, which are challenged by their borders, the professions are adapted to globalization because they develop global associations that adopt common technical standards and ethical charters of behavior.

The other side of the coin is probably procedural, in the transparency of procedures and sanctions, since professional organizations take responsibility for sanctioning their own members themselves, exposing them to capture or even pushing them to conflict of interest. Professions such as banking and finance must now demonstrate that they can create the confidence they need and fuel their industry.
