What is regulatory compliance?

I was helping a startup business get off to a good start by helping them with advice on how to make the company resilient but it soon became clear that they also needed to understand the regulations they needed to comply with.  So I thought I would use my years of experience of compliance to give you the information you need to keep your business on the right side of the law.

This advice is not specific. It can’t be because all I can do in a post is generalize and give you the basics. You will need to seek out specific advice for your own circumstances if you think there may be some other regulations you need to comply with than the ones I am talking about here.

What does compliance have to do with resilience? That’s an easy one. Resilience is about taking a holistic view of your business and managing risks. Compliance is also about managing risk, although these have been pointed out to you by regulators and probably feel like just another burden, although they are there for a good reason. 

Failure to comply.

If you have failed to comply with fire safety regulations for example and your building burns down it may be your own fault. It will certainly be a really good excuse for your insurance company to say ‘NO’ and then the survival of your business is probably in serious doubt.  

So here is a list of the regulations and the documents you may well have to complete but remember my caveat above, this is a generic list and your situation may be different.

Clicking on the links in the tables will take you to simply-docs website where you can find more information and download the template for yourself. Some of the links may break over time but they will take you to the simply-docs website that will guide you to where you need to be.

You’ll have to pay for most of them but it may save you a lot of time. Alternatively, you can ask a consultant to complete them for you if you would rather be doing something more interesting.
