By doing this, we keep our clients up to date with any changes in their legal compliance obligations.

The title of each of the main legal texts published between the 1st January 2020 and 31st March 2020 are listed below, separated by main area of work: Quality, Environment and Health & Safety. If you would like a full copy of this Legal Compliance Update please email us at and one of the team will be happy to supply the full update to you.

The legal texts identified in this blog do not represent all the legislation published in relation to these 3 topics. AvISO Consultancy selects the ones most relevant to the Companies it works with.

The most important legal texts published during this quarter address the Brexit process and the Coronavirus pandemic crisis.
