National Compliance Officer Day

National Compliance Officer Day is a holiday established to recognize the professionalism and hard work of individuals who ensure that the organizations they work for comply with external legal and regulatory requirements, as well as internal bylaws and policies.

Without these professionals, organizations would struggle to keep their day-to-day practices aligned with the company’s bylaws and would lack someone to evaluate procedures or respond to allegations of misconduct by employees. This day is observed annually on the 26th of September and has been for the past few years.

The History of National Compliance Officer Day

We’re unsure of exactly when this holiday was created, but we do know who created it. It was first established by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics to honor the men and women who work diligently to ensure a company maintains its integrity in all its business dealings.

Observing National Compliance Officer Day

On this day, employees and organizations are encouraged to thank their compliance officers for all they do throughout the year. This can be as simple as a verbal thank you, or it can take the form of a card or even flowers. While observing this holiday, people and businesses should also use the hashtag #NationalComplianceOfficerDay to spread the word about this holiday.
