Building Compliance Audits

Compliance in the built environment presents both a risk and an opportunity to facilities managers (FMs). There is continued debate over the definition of compliance and continual requirement to demonstrate compliance. As FMs we often ask and are asked what is compliance and are frequently challenged to prove compliance.
