Since 1999 the Compliance Certification Board has developed criteria to determine competence in the practice of compliance and ethics across various industries and specialty areas, and recognizes individuals meeting these criteria through its compliance certification programs. CCB is an independent body made up of compliance and ethics professionals who determine what obligations you need to fulfill prior to and after certification.
