Compliance is a process of complying with established rules, guidelines, acts, and laws, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Occupation Safety and Health Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, anti-discrimination laws, and sexual harassment. Compliance can also include efforts requisite for ensuring that organizations adhere to government legislation and industry regulations. It is a widespread industry concern, in part due to the increasing number of laws requiring vigilance about maintaining a comprehensive knowledge of all regulatory compliance requirements. For instance, developing software compliant with recognized specifications would then need to be deployed by users who are compliant with a merchant licensing agreement.
