The European Ethics & Compliance Association (EECA) is the first professional body to serve the Ethics & Compliance practitioners all over Europe (including Russia), Middle East and North Africa. The initial idea of an association for European Ethics & Compliance Officers was put forward by Mr. Cristian Ducu in 2008, in the context of the first training program taking place in Europe for this type of professionals, but only in 2017 it became an organisation per se. During all this time, the efforts were focused more on building a community of expertise in Eastern Europe, than in giving a legal statute to our group. From 2017, the main objective of EECA is to extend the professional network in order to promote a European ethos in its field of expertise.
