Industry-specific Regulation

Whilst the majority of laws such as data protection apply across industries, we recognise that each individual sector also has specific legislation that they must abide by to trade lawfully. Every industry will have a governing body, or a number of governing bodies, in place to ensure a certain standard of quality and performance is met or exceeded. These industry-specific regulations tend to be more stringent than general regulatory responsibilities and should be adhered to in the same way. 



Industry-specific regulations are supplementary policies that should be woven into your daily commercial life in addition to the regulatory responsibilities of employment relationships. For example, the food and leisure sector should comply with the Food Standards Code and the financial sector demands businesses operate within the guidelines set in FSMA, the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.

It is important that you understand the regulations that are expected of your industry so you can ensure your operations are compliant. Our team has experience in working with clients based in a wide variety of sectors and industries from manufacturing and engineering, to laundry, food production, and IT and technology. The team is also experienced in researching industries and putting together detailed advice notes for businesses and will be able to give you clear, precise advice that you can deploy in your business.
