As part of the service AvISO Consultancy offer, we provide our clients with quarterly updates on any changes to legal compliance. By doing this, we keep our clients up to date with any changes in their legal compliance obligations.

The main legal texts published between the 1st October and the 31st December 2022 are listed below, separated by the main areas of work: Quality, Environment, Health & Safety, and Information Security.

The legal texts identified in this blog do not represent all the legislation published in relation to these four topics. AvISO Consultancy selects the legislation that it believes will apply to the companies it works with.  In addition, AvISO Consultancy does not take responsibility for the accuracy of any information provided and would recommend that you take appropriate legal advice regarding any new legislation that might apply to your business, as appropriate.
