Regulatory breaches can result in enforcement action (either criminal or civil) being taken against businesses or individuals. Any breach of regulations or obligations can result in loss of registration with regulators, criminal prosecution, prohibition notices and many other serious sanctions. This can be devastating for a business.
Regulatory authorities include Trading Standards, the Health and Safety Executive, the Environment Agency, the Food Standards Agency, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Care Quality Commission, Ofsted and many more. They all have differing ranges of powers but what they have in common is a set of robust enforcement actions that they can take against you or your business.
