Regulatory Compliance

8.01   Regulatory Compliance

            
Scope-In order for an organization to understand how to tackle issues, establish goals, develop performance criteria and simply grade themselves, they must have something to compare themselves to (a standard). For that reason, this chapter was developed as a reference chapter to identify recognized codes, laws, regulations and standards of care and performance that employees of the Town of Greenville Fire Department can strive for. The following list is not limiting or intended to restrict employees to only these references. The references are normally well established, valid, reliable resources. It is the intent of the Town of Greenville Fire Department to strive toward 100% compliance of these “regulations” or “standards” but total compliance may take time, money and new resource allocation before that goal is reached. Training and qualifications should be founded on these recognized references.
