There is an interesting relationship between government laws, regulations and standards. First, laws are issued by a governing body to achieve a desired result. Then regulation directs industry and individuals within that specific jurisdiction to meet specific targets in response to those mandates. Standards are developed to meet those targets in concrete ways and to measure results to prove compliance.
In the field of pollution control, you can see the above standards support regulatory targets (for example those found in 2008/50/EC, the European Air Quality Standard). Compliance with certain pollution standards in that jurisdiction may be mandatory.
We also need to mention that standards do support “best practices” and in the area of pollution control, no company should be ignoring the standards developments that impact their industry. Public opinion negatively affects organizations that are not doing their utmost to avoid harm to the environment. And the legal hazards of ignorance should be clear as well.
There are many legal pitfalls in the development and distribution of products in today’s global economy. Document Center Inc. provides you not only with information on changes to the standards you currently use, but has current awareness products to support the identification of standards you can’t afford to miss.
