Question Please define "Statutory and Regulatory Requirements"

In our most recent ISO meeting, I was asked what the meaning of "Statutory and Regulatory Requirements" is. I do not know. It is mentioned numerous times in the ISO9001:2000 standard. Does anyone have a definition?

Statutory requirements are laws (statutes) covering certain things. Aside from everyday statutory requirements like speed limits and traffic laws, there are statutes that apply to the business world. An example would be OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act) or a local law on dumping waste.

Regulatory requirements are standards or rules that are set up to regulate something. An example here would be some of the EPA emission standards. These aren't laws like a speed limit but are limits imposed by a regulatory commission.

I am sure there are better examples somewhere but these are the ones I could think of quickly. If you need further explanation, I am sure others can help out too.

Statutory = Laws; legal requirements

Regulatory pertains to those parts of a business that are subject to regulation, such as EPA requirements, FMVSS regulations for motor vehicles, OSHA regulations, etc.

The two are not mutually exclusive; there are statutory (law) requirements for compliance with certain regulations.

These are good examples, but in the TYPICAL CONTEXT of ISO 9001 implementation, EPA/OSHA are NOT part of the regulatory requirements the ISO 9001 Standard is referring to. Think of product/service regulatory requirements coming, for example from the FAA, FDA, FCC, DOT, European Directives, RoHS, WEEE, etc...

You are correct, sir. But I was giving a general definition, and the ISO standard refers to applicable regulatory requirements, so I thought that was already covered.
