Diana Lough: Regulatory and statutory compliance has long played a part in business. Traditionally the emphasis has focused on the safety and efficacy for raw materials, components, sub-assemblies and finished products sold. It often included third-party testing resulting in a listing or mark on the product and for finished products and/or it may have required a registration or license with a government agency. No matter the scale, failure to comply requires time and resources (and therefore money) to resolve the issue along with interruption to the business and failure to meet customer needs.
