It's a great start. There are areas that need to be "fleshed out" before anyone should take it and run with it. But it is an incredibly useful tool as is. Thank you for sharing!

What a fantastic checklist. Statistically, most companies do not regularly check on the effectiveness of their compliance programs. With a checklist like this, it keeps the process simple with green, yellow or red lights as indicators of individual programs, as well as an indicator of processes or procedures that need to be implemented. A Compliance check-up doesn't need to be exhaustive. This is how to begin!

This checklist is exactly what I was looking for. It gives action items for what we need to do to improve our programs and our culture.

I find this particularly helpful. I was reading that in business, in order to be truly successful that you should investigate your successes along with your failures. By assessing your company I feel that this forces you to evaluate both and further secure the security of your company when it comes to compliance
