Why do I need a Legislation Register?

All companies have a legal obligation to comply with existing legislation. In addition, a number of Environment and H&S management standards require companies to identify, maintain and update a list of relevant legislation.

From ISO 14001 - Environmental Management System Standard:
4.3.2 Legal and other requirements
The organisation shall establish, implement and maintain a procedure(s)
a) To identify and have access to the applicable legal requirements and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes related to its environmental aspects, and
b) To determine how these requirements apply to its environmental aspects.

From OHSAS 18001:2007 - Managing occupational health and safety
4.3.2 Legal and other requirements
The organisation shall establish, implement and maintain a procedure(s) for identifying and accessing the legal and other OH&S requirements that are applicable to it.
The organisation shall ensure that these applicable legal requirements and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes are taken into account in establishing, implementing and maintaining its OH&S management system.
The organisation shall keep this information up-to-date.
The organisation shall communicate relevant information on legal and other requirements to persons working under the control of the organisation, and other relevant interested parties.
