State and Federal Regulatory Compliance
Regulatory compliance can be complicated and particular. Whether you comply may mean life or death for your business. How you meet your obligations may involve significant bottom line costs. Penalties may be oppressive. Please take your compliance obligations seriously. Address them proactively for the greatest time and cost efficiency. It is often a good idea to consult an attorney regarding regulatory requirements applicable to your business.
Read all agency communications carefully. Government departments that administer regulations have almost as many rules with which to comply as do you. In most circumstances, you will have a limited amount of time within which to respond, and must provide requested data in required formats. In rare circumstances, a request may be improper under agency rules. (It happens.) All administrative agency dealings must occur according to established procedures. For help, consult an attorney as soon as possible upon receiving any agency communication or request.
