The reform of the Spanish Criminal Code introduced by Constitutional Law 5/2010, of 22 June, and the subsequent Constitutional Law 1/2015, of 30 March, introduced the direct criminal liability of legal persons for criminal offences committed by legal representatives and directors on behalf and for the benefit of such legal persons, or by employees not subject to adequate control. Within this new legal framework, companies of all sizes are required to implement effective compliance programs in order to prevent, detect and respond to legal risks of their companies and avoid the commission of crimes.
