Compliance is one of the most intimidating parts of international retail. Around the world, retailers are coming under increased regulatory pressure from both governments and consumers. The more regions your business operates in, the more difficult it is to comply with all of the different regulations. That’s especially true if your business involves potentially hazardous products like food, electronics or products intended for children.
The exact steps to retail compliance will vary depending on what your organisation sells and where you’re selling it. That said, this checklist provides a generalised set of best practices that can help your retail organisation stay in compliance wherever you do business.
