BME-Competence Center

Exclusively for our member companies, we offer professional legal and compliance advice on all aspects of purchasing, supply chain and logistics. We are thus orienting ourselves not only on the needs of globally active member companies, but also on those of medium-sized companies. As a member company, you benefit from discounted standard rates.

In addition to numerous consulting services, the BME also offers its member companies advice on the design and implementation of supplier compliance audits via the BME Competence Center. These complement the BME's offer to join the BME Compliance Initiative.

In order to meet the constantly growing information needs of member companies in the field of "Law & Compliance", the BME offers various BME guidelines on "Global Purchasing Law" for a large number of countries as well as on "Antitrust Law in Purchasing" for download via the website.
