The ECU Compliance program is based on best practice set by the Australian Standard AS3806 -2006: Compliance Programs.
There are four key elements for an effective compliance program:
- Commitment - commitment by the Council and senior management to effective compliance that permeates throughout the whole University.
- Implementation - Compliance responsibilities are assigned, training needs addressed and controls implemented to manage compliance obligations.
- Monitoring and measuring - the Compliance program is documented, monitored, measured and reported.
- Continual improvement - the Compliance program is regularly reviewed and improvement made when appropriate.
