Compliance management is continuously changing – laws, regulations, standards for Health & Safety, Quality, Environmental Management, Information Security, Business Continuity or even client and stakeholder contractual obligations.
So how can businesses get things right? With new safety laws, regulations and standards appearing on a regular basis it can be a nightmare to keep abreast of the impacts to its operations.
Failing to have the right controls and culture in place may result in major financial loss or someone being hurt or injured – especially when it’s connected with compliance to safety or environmental regulatory requirements.
What is Compliance Management?
Effectively compliance management is how you conform to specified requirements. At an organisational level it is often achieved through effectively defined processes which identify the applicable requirements such as laws, regulations, approved codes of practice, standards, guidance notes, contracts, strategies and policies.
However, Compliance Management is more than just meeting the requirements of laws and regulations. Organisations must deal with many safety and environmental requirements that may be defined by clients, investors or other stakeholders. In order to meet the requirements robust processes and means of benchmarking are essential to our operations and ensuring that these are continually monitored and reviewed to ensure nothing is overlooked.
The ultimate objective of our Compliance team is to work with Clients to ensure they fulfil all their responsibilities and effectively manage potential non-conformances.
