Summary of the article (by Marie-Anne Frison-Roche)
The article is based on the fact that in general Compliance Law aims to circulate Information and that Training, by nature, is a process for transmitting information, bringing both together.
Insofar as Compliance Law internalizes in "crucial operators" the obligation to circulate information (within it, vis-à-vis its stakeholders and the authorities, but also between crucial operators) , it is therefore logical that they develop training programs, not in an adjacent way but in a main way, because of this identity.
Indeed, training is a means of obtaining that information is "well received", that is to say understood, assimilated and used by its recipient for what it was transmitted. The regulatory and supervisory authorities therefore control the effectiveness of obtaining this effect.
The author finally takes two examples, one of spontaneous adoption of a Compliance training program, operated by Total group, the other of forced adoption, operated by Johnson & Johnson group, to illustrate its general demonstration.
