Compliance Management


This module will enable participants to identify potential threats, hazards and risks, using appropriate tools, and to equip them with an understanding of the tools and methodologies to allow compliance to be a part of normal operations. Thus, this module provides a comprehensive framework for Compliance Management, expressed with clarity, rigour and simplicity. The concepts, models and frameworks enable participants to understand and critically evaluate the issues concerning compliance and how the appropriate actions may be implemented. These can then be used to help those in manufacturing to understand and derive appropriate approaches for identifying and adopting key compliance strategies which will align with and support the strategic objectives and direction of the organisation as a whole. The module addresses areas of the nature of compliance and the consequences of failure, identifying areas for improvement methodologies for managing stakeholders, implementing, maintaining and managing compliance regulation.
