Jurisdictional Standards


A special category of standards that affects practically all organizations is that group of regulatory standards promulgated by federal, state, and local jurisdictions such as OSHA, DOT, DOE, EPA, Cal-OSHA, counties, cities, and regional governing bodies. These standards have the distinction of being enforceable by legal sanction, typically fines, and in some cases incarceration. This is different from standards that may have been agreed upon by contract between two companies, which do not have the same means of enforcement.
