If the regulatory compliance for a product is not easily demonstrated, a manufacturer may be faced with an inability to ship the customer order, or a shipment of product getting held at the customs. This is because the company could not produce the proof of product regulatory approval in a timely manner. These are not uncommon occurrences and in general, a Compliance Engineer lives these events multiple times during his/her career.
Product Regulatory Compliance plays a significant role in the shipment of products to foreign and domestic customers. In order to have the Product Regulatory Compliance evidence readily available for an audit or a shipment is a function of verifying the validity, quality and availability of one's Regulatory Compliance documentation. Organizing and providing a secure and known location for the Product Regulatory Compliance documentation is an obvious and commonplace practice that is essential for uninterrupted shipment of goods. Giving such a practice a scientific, formal, mandatory and rule-based framework establishes the roots of the product regulatory compliance.
The Product Regulatory Compliance is an omnipresent function in an enterprise.
A lack of conformance may result into impact on multiple fronts, including on communities and on the business.
