As part of the service AvISO Consultancy offer, we provide our clients with quarterly updates of 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 January 2021 and 31st March 2021 are listed below, separated by main area of work: Quality, Environment, Health & Safety, and Information Security.
