Legal Compliance Update - Q3 2019

October 10, 2019

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 July 2019 and 30th September 2019 are listed below, separated by the main area of work: Quality, Environment and Health & Safety.

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.

Here’s a brief look at some of the changes to legal compliance from quarter three of 2019;
