The Law 1/2015, published the 1st of July of 2015, has introduced relevant changes in the criminal responsibility of the legal entities regulated in the Criminal Code. Among the changes, we must highlight the following:
- The crime must be committed to directly or indirectly benefit the company.
- Some elements are introduced to check the effectiveness of the Corporate Compliance Programs
- The new identification of the insolvency offence creates a blurred line with the bankruptcy regulated in the Bankruptcy Law
