Compliance and ethics represent one of the fastest growing professions. Almost every
company has implemented a compliance and ethics program or is in the process of
doing so. One expert recently estimated that there are approximately 250,000 professionals in the field. Given the fast pace of change, this new profession is facing
major challenges in providing the resources companies need to develop and manage
effective compliance and ethics programs.
he Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional (CCEP) program promotes
a standard of requisite knowledge for compliance and ethics, encourages continued
personal and professional growth, and enhances the credibility of both certified
professionals and the compliance programs that they staff. SCCE credits
earned at the Academy will count toward the credits required to sit for the certification
exam. Professionals who earn the CCEP designation demonstrate sufficient knowledge
of government regulations and compliance processes to understand and address
legal obligations and promote organizational integrity through the operation of
effective compliance programs.
