The article focuses on the analysis of the compliance policy implementation in Ukraine's nuclear energy. The experience of implementing the compliance function abroad and at domestic enterprises is considered, the main problems of policy functioning are analyzed, and the reserves of improvement are revealed. In recent years, more and more companies in developed countries have begun to implement the compliance function. It has undergone a particular path of evolution, from formal compliance

In Ukraine, particularly in the energy sector, compliance policy remains a narrow area to minimize legal and reputational risks. Compliance policy ensures that the company complies not only with internal rules but also with legal norms. Thus, compliance is the basis of social responsibility. However, insufficient attention is paid to this area. The low level of robotization of business processes in which the compliance function is involved, the lack of specialists in compliance, the lack of methodological support confirm this. Despite the improvement of compliance policy at NNEGC "Energoatom", the promotion of ethical and responsible business, the company identified severe problems in legal responsibility. There are many facts of corruption violations and abuses, which are confirmed by law enforcement agencies and anonymous surveys of nuclear power workers. Based on the reports on the implementation of anti-corruption programs, a risk assessment matrix of NNEGC Energoatom has been constructed. The most significant risks are associated with procurement procedures for goods and services and conflicts of interest. There are several solutions to reduce corruption risks, remarkably: ensuring full automation of the procurement process in the SAR ERP system, reducing the number of intermediaries, increasing the percentage of direct contracts.
