As any BNP Paribas Function or Operational Entity, RISK is responsible for the management, in compliance with BNP Paribas risks tolerance and the supporting policies and procedures, of the operational and regulatory risks caused by, or related to, its activity. A permanent control framework, relying on three lines of defense guaranties the proper exercise of such responsibility.

RISK first line of defense (1LoD) relies mostly on a network of identified Operational Permanent Control (OPC) coordinators spread across the different streams of the RISK function.

Each RISK department organizes itself to implement the Operational Risk Management Framework (ORMF) and to manage operational risks deriving from its activity. The RISK Iberian (Lisbon and Madrid) hub comprise teams with heterogeneous deployment of ORMF and steering of their operational risks. Therefore RISK Iberian hub need a Global OPC to continue reinforcing the consistency of the management of operational risks across RISK Iberian hub, to complete the implementation of the ORMF within the different teams and to refine the assessment of the global risk profile of RISK Iberian hub.

The RISK Iberian hub OPC will:

  1. assess overall ORMF (including data protection, TPRM, Fraud, technology risks) thoughout RISK Iberian hub,
  2. ensure the consistency of the ORMF implementation cross RISK Iberian hub teams (RCSA, Control Plan, Procedures, recommendations monitoring),
  3. coordinate the preparation and documentation of the Internal Control Committee of RISK,
  4. articulate his/her actions with RISK CCCO campaign,
  5. contribute to the RISK OPCs community animated by RISK CCCO,
  6. assist if needed teams in their OPC tasks.

The RISK Iberian hub OPC will report to the head of RISK CCCO (Chief Controls and Conduct Officer) Office.


The RISK IBERIAN HUB OPC has the responsibility, together with OPCs of RISK Iberian hub teams, to identify and assess non-financial risks, to ensure the enforcement and efficiency of the control framework.
