An Introduction To TECC

TECC (The European Compliance Conference) is arguably Europe's leading, international conference for Compliance Professionals.  TECC is held in a different European city each year and TECC 2019 was held in Brussels.

Senior speakers from the EU Commission, Regulators, Law Firms and Compliance Practitioners are regularly invited to participate in the programme.  Representatives from European Securities Regulators have spoken at many conferences.  Details of Opening Dinner and Key Note Speakers are available here.

The conference programme addresses key regulatory and implementation issues in a pragmatic way with well-informed plenary discussions and hands-on workshop sessions.  This format has proved very successful with Compliance Officers from over 20 different countries and regularly attracts over 200 delegates.  

The rich networking opportunities allow a unique chance to build contacts, compare best practices and discuss fresh approaches to new and on-going challenges.  This conference offers an invaluable opportunity to talk informally to experts with a broad knowledge of each jurisdiction's regulatory regime.

TECC is organised by Compliance Officers for Compliance Officers with the Conference Planning Committee being made up of representatives from several countries.  

TECC was initiated in 2000 by the UK Securities Houses Compliance Officers Group and is organised each year by a group of European Compliance Officers working in the banking and capital markets.  

TECCs primary aim is to promote education and networking within the Compliance Community.  A further aim of the organisers is to offer the highest standard of programme and organisation at the lowest possible delegate cost - keeping the conference fees well below those charged by commercial conference organisers.
