The corporate compliance system, an internal control mechanism to prevent, detect and stop illegal and criminal offences within a corporate, can serve to effectively solve potential criminal compliance risks in construction projects. The construction projects are characterized by their long-term, continuous and concealed nature. In addition, the system design of construction projects is limited by many factors, including the limitation of traditional centralized administrative mode, the absence of process supervision mechanism and reciprocal motivation mechanism, the complicated setting of supervision matters, the lack of reciprocity of the motivation mechanism and the dislocation of the main body in regulatory responsibilities. Such that, numerous violations of rules and regulations, including quality-centred disputes and safety accidents, keep coming up in the construction industry in China.
Under the context of the co-development of economic and legal globalization, in order to prevent and control the potential criminal compliance risks of construction engineering corporates, it is necessary to construct compliance rules centred on supervision activities, form a corporate criminal offence and compliance identification mechanism, improve the corporate criminal liability system, establish corporate obligation and rules of criminal compliance, formulate measures for the dual models of punishment and incentive, and promote the construction and implementation of the corporate compliance system of the construction industry.
