What is Compliance Management?

Compliance Management Definition

Compliance management is the process by which an organization plans, controls and monitors whether or not a product complies with the applicable laws and regulations or a company’s self-imposed policy and standards. Compliance requirements often vary by industry and location. Some compliance requirements are environmental (e.g. RoHS and WEEE) while others are specific to a particular type of product such as medical devices (e.g. 21 CFR Part 11 and 21 CFR Part 820).
