Compliance is a term that often refers to the legal or regulatory requirements that are imposed on an organization. Compliance is typically used in reference to financial services, healthcare, and many other industries. For example, if an organization wants to sell insurance products in the United States, it must comply with specific rules set forth by the U.S. government agencies like the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act). Noncompliance can result in fines or even criminal action.
