The article justifies the importance of studying compliance in subsoil use, and examines the specific features of compliance in this area. A particular attention is paid to interrelation of compliance in subsoil use with other areas of compliance.

A conclusion is made that compliance in subsoil use is organically built into the system of corporate compliance areas, and it is focused on specific compliance risks, it involves close interaction with state supervisory agencies, and compliance is impossible without taking into account international standards in subsoil use.
