[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he first Viadrina Compliance Congress was held on November 20, 2012 in the so called senate hall of the Viadrina University. The congress was organized by the chair of Polish Pubic Law of the Viadrina University and the Compliance Academy Münster. The congress was dedicated to the subject of "Europeanization of Compliance and Compliance in Sales“. Focus on the lectures has been the vogue word „compliance“. The German Corporate Governance Code (DCGK) defines compliance as the responsibility of board members to comply with the legal requirements and internal company guidelines. The first panel was focusing on these requirements from a theoretical point of view. The second panel dealt with these same requirement from a practical perspective. The lectures were being held by lawyers and economists as a consequence of the interdisciplinarity of the subject which can be considered as an interface between law and economics.
