Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) is a nonprofit, individual membership association which provides resources for ethics and compliance professionals from various industries.[1] It serves over 5,500 members through publications, education programs, conferences and professional networking, including an online social network called SCCEnet, which has over 14,000 registered users.[2][3] SCCE also helps individuals become Certified Compliance and Ethics Professionals.


The first National Symposium on Corporate Responsibility: Compliance & Ethics Programs was held on November 21–22 in 2002 and was sponsored by the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) in association with Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, Washington. The conference drew 100 attendees from some of the top corporations in the nation including DuPont, PricewaterhouseCoopers,, Boeing, Starbucks, the University of Texas and many more. The keynote speaker was William C. Powers Jr. who served as Chairman of the Special Investigative Committee of the Board of Directors of Enron Corporation.

Requests for a second Symposium were answered in 2003. More than 250 attendees filled the room to hear speakers such as James Sheehan, Associate United States Attorney for Civil Programs; Ron James, CEO, Center for Ethical Business Cultures; Honorable Michael E. Horowitz, United States Sentencing Commission; and Colleen Rowley, Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation. Their mission was clear: there needed to be a forum for business professionals working in the compliance and ethics field.[4]

The Compliance and Ethics Institute now attracts approximately 1500 attendees annually and the SCCE has grown to over 5,500 members.[5]

Education, publications and events[edit]

The SCCE offers publications and live training[6][7] to its members. These resources cover the range of challenges faced by compliance professionals in managing compliance and ethics programs.[8] The SCCE addresses regulatory topics such as sexual harassment, antitrust/anti-competition, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act/anti-bribery, export control and more, as well as the broad challenge of managing a program designed to meet the United States Federal Sentencing Guidelines definition of an effective compliance program.[9] SCCE's members enjoy access to a repository of over 4,000 electronic documents including white papers and government memorandum.[10]


The SCCE worked with the Compliance Certification Board (CCB) to develop an examination certification in compliance and ethics. To date over 1200 people have obtained the Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional Certification (CCEP).[11] The CCEP Fellow and CCEP International certifications has also been created.[12]

Code of Professional Ethics[edit]

On August 29, 2007, The Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) adopted a Code of Professional Ethics for Compliance and Ethics Professionals.[13]

The Code's purpose is to provide guidance and rules to all Compliance and Ethics Professionals (CEP) in the performance of their professional responsibilities. In creating the Code of Professional Ethics, the SCCE establishes both overarching principles to guide compliance officials and rules of conduct, which represent specific standards that prescribe the minimum level of professional conduct expected of CEPs.
