The compliance staff unit is responsible for implementing, safeguarding and documenting the compliance management system according to guidelines from the rector/rector's office and is obliged to report back to them.
"A compliance management system (CMS) can be understood as the principles introduced on the basis of defined targets as well as the organizational and procedural measures a company takes to guarantee that the legal representatives and employees as well as third parties when applicable behave in accordance with the rules. The goal is to adhere to certain rules and thus avoid any significant infringements of the rules. The CMS aims to identify any important compliance risks in the company."
