In May 2014, the Head of the CBA, the Chairperson of the Financial Supervision Authority and Chairman of the Board of the Warsaw Stock Exchange signed a declaration on cooperation, which aims to patronage training courses and workshops designed to increase the compliance culture, i.e. acting in accordance with the legal governance in institutions operating in the ﬁnancial market. In this regard, the CBA oﬃcers participated in workshops and conferences involving issues of public procurement, whistleblowing, the importance of compliance culture, and compliance in the ﬁght against corruption.
