In interdepartmental communications, Kaplan says that ALL communication must go through the legal or compliance department.

I was under the impression that factual information was allowed to be shared directly between departments (without going through the legal department), but I could also be wrong here.


Still needs to go to compliance.

I would say that the factual information, before an official release, could be checked with IB and a cover company to verify their correctness.

Look it up in the curriculum: easy peasy.
