The daily life of commerce involves an ever increasing degree of statutory regulation creating pitfalls which can lead to criminal and civil liability, not only for a company but for its directors and senior managers.
How a business looks after the health & safety of its employees, impacts upon the environment, deals with consumers, advertises, transports and ensures the safety of its products are but a sample of the areas in which all businesses are subject to statutory regulation.
