Compliance: Navigating Regulations and Documentation

Compliance: Navigating Regulations and Documentation
For many industries and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), federal and international regulatory compliance is a critical issue. Over the past few years, there has been a rapid increase in new global product-related regulations and standards development activities, with a multitude of new restrictions, as well as reporting, classification, labeling and packaging requirements. As a result, some companies become trapped in the complex loop of various national and worldwide product-related regulations.

Companies that find themselves out of compliance – even for minor regulatory infractions – can end up in regulatory hot water. Non-compliance is no laughing matter. A simple reporting error or lack of proper registration and compliance can result in significant fines and penalties, a product recall – or even complete ban from selling products – customer and supplier loss, and damage to the corporate image.
