With compliance at the heart of business continuity in regulated industries, staying prepared is mission critical. Whether your goal is to comply with complex environmental directives, complicated quality standards or critical health and safety regulations, your organization must adhere to and stay current with the latest regulations/directives and be able to prove it. Compliance may be mandatory for many organizations, but it also makes good business sense. Streamlining compliance management can improve competitiveness by freeing up bandwidth to focus on proactive risk mitigation strategies.

What Does Compliance Mean to You?

Compliance means different things to different locations, industries and job functions,
but at the core you need to adhere to key regulations/directives while being able to prove
it to the appropriate regulatory entities.

Healthy and Safety Compliance
There are different health and safety regulations in different jurisdictions around the world, e.g. US OSHA, EU Directive 89 and ISO 45001. All of these regulations work to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create safer working conditions.
Quality compliance ensures that the products in certain industries are safe for consumers. But companies that adhere to key quality regulations (and also insist that their suppliers do) are generally more successful.
Over the last decade, environmental and sustainability regulations for business have become increasingly important around the world. Almost every country has tightened controls by introducing more regulations and actively enforcing them. Failure can destroy a company brand and result in significant fines or litigation.

The 5 Steps to Compliance

No matter where your company operates or what products and services it offers, there are five basic steps to regulatory compliance.

1. Understand the Regulations

Applicable regulations and directives depend on your company's operating location(s) and line of business. But simply understanding the rules up front is not sufficient as the laws, policies and regulations that are important for your company are constantly changing.

Once you know the applicable required rules and regulations, you need to make a plan on how to comply. What staffing, equipment, policies and processes are required for your company to meet its compliance goals?

The more planning you do up front, the easier it will be to implement the plan and determine the KPIs required to measure its success.

Intelex Compliance Tracking Software sets compliance tasks, due dates, renewal dates, job escalations, threshold exceedance warnings, and more to create a compliance process that effectively drives itself.

Compliance regulations and directives are changeable, but so too are the goals for your business. Analyzing the progress for your compliance efforts and how they apply to external regulations as well as internal business goals creates a win-win scenario.
