Compliance means the following of a set of rules.


Rules are set by law such as the Environmental Protection Act (pollution control to soil, air and water), Employment Law (compliance with staff welfare, training needs etc), Animal Welfare Act (statutory requirements for the keeping of livestock) to list but a few.


If you claim rural payments such as the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) then you must comply with a set of Cross Compliance rules covering Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions (GAECs) and Statutory Management Requirements (SMRs).


Rules are set by the various assurance schemes such as Red Tractor, to ensure standards are met and allow access to premium markets.


Failure to comply with these rules can have many implications including loss of income, loss of markets, loss of time and in more serious cases prosecutions and even custodial sentences.


With so many rules to follow let Reassurance provide you with the support to ensure your compliance is maintained and income protected.
