The Program consists of eight well-defined steps, which in principle are taken annually.
On the first occasion, these are preceded by two one-off preliminary meetings. The first is with relevant stakeholders within management, to explain the Program and ensure their buy-in. The second is with whoever has been entrusted by the Board to ensure compliance, in order to identify and fill any obvious gaps in the present compliance situation.
In this way, a firm foundation is established for the implementation of the Program within the company.
