The current regulations seek to encourage companies to work toward the prevention and control of internal corruption. For this reason, private companies can be sanctioned through fines, cancellations of licenses, closure of premises and even dissolution as a result of the acts of corruption of some of their members.
There are measures that companies can adopt to improve internal control in organizations and achieve business management that helps prevent the commission of crimes, as well as the promotion of ethical values, including the implementation of "Compliance Programs", also known as "Prevention Models". The early implementation of such programs would minimize the impact or even release the organization from administrative responsibility.
