Introduction to compliance
Compliance is an ability that acts according to some particular rules; in case of business compliance, two levels are present that operates. In the first level, compliance that is associated with external rules is generally imposed on an organization. However, in the second level internal systems that is generally imposed for achieving compliance based on the externally imposed rules(Alqallaf, and Alareeni, 2018).The compliance, management and risk audit functions are independent of the business. In recent years there has been much emphasis on this independence and effective capacity for action, especially the compliance function, and its relationship with the banking sector. Policies and controls should be reviewed and improved, adapting them to the evolution of the regulations, the bank's strategy and the business environment.
Compliance regulator in Bahrain
Bahrain’s central bank is the compliance regulator, andit is attributed to the board of directors with management of each bank. It fosters these banks to act with integrity, honesty and set an example to the rest of the organization(Méric, et al, 2010).It acts as the regulator for compliance risks that the banks in Bahrain may suffer as a result of breach of laws, regulations, rules, internal regulations and codes of conduct applicable to banking activities.
The Central Bank of Bahrain has implemented the right ecosystem to support compliance. It has implemented different new regulations to support open banking, the regulation of cryptographic asset trade and the draft regulation on theft-advisory(Alqallaf, et al, 2018).They focus on the sanctioning aspect and the losses originated for the banks rather than on the promotion of a more ethereal, but effective in the long term, a culture of compliance for the benefit of shareholders' interest. or customers.
Bahrain's national bank has just fixed administration rules for Islamic banks, expecting them to experience autonomous outside reviews, and presented a progressively stringent system for the sharia sheets that vet their exercises. The controller is presently creating usage rules for a portion of these compliance capacities.
Significance of compliance
Compliance is an essential element that is part of the culture of each organization. It is the better way to encourage and expand this culture than with the existence of a specific compliance function in line with Central Bank of Bahrain as the regulator(Hawaldar, Rahiman, Rajesha, & KR, 2017). It is necessary to assume compliance responsibilities with a specific organizational structure and also ensure that the decision is applicable to all of the banks.
Benefits of compliance
Compliance helps to focus on identifying the key issues. Bulky information should be avoided and presented in a concise manner and within the specific context of what is intended to be accomplished. The relevance and accuracy of the information presented to it, as well as the lack thereof, should be periodically established by the council(Alqallaf, et al, 2018). Proper compliance helps the organization to avert substantial risks and stay ahead in the industry. It will help them to fully comply in the stipulated period of time to meet the significant deficiencies.
Impact of non-compliance
Non-compliance causes regulatory andreputational risks arising from breach of legal provisions, norms, standards, and codes of conductadoptedby the banking industry associated with compliance issues.Legislation and the current worldwide trend in compliance, shows a way forward and leads to awareness that compliance with all internal and external regulations, but also provides greater security and transparency when doing business in the country(Aribi, &Arun, 2015).When there is no compliance and lack of principle, it causes substantive impact on application of the principle, breach of several essential criteria and, ineffective supervision.

It is also the only regulator of compliance in the financial sector.
