During the past few decades compliances with regulations, rule of law, and good practices have been eroding in Sri Lankan society. In a satisfying society: People live in peace, free from the threat of violence, oppression, and crime. Everyone’s inherent dignity is respected. Governing institutions act with integrity, are accountable to citizens and are subject to the rule of law.

Social discipline is a fundamental part of a prosperous society. Its existence is possible only if the members of the society believe in the concept of compliance with rule of law and regulations in full.

Discipline, which involves rules and regulation is the basic element of a society’s functionality.

Disciplined individuals provide an effective system of socialization to make them faithful to the concept of social control. 

It is a question of whether the majority of our society understand the importance of adhering to laws and regulations, or whether such requirement exists. Do we understand compliance with regulations is individual citizens’ social responsibility or believe it is a rule or command to follow? Or is it the popular belief that noncompliance brings greater benefits?

Whatever the case maybe it is a fact that non-compliance to rules of nature or ethics, rules and regulations set out by humanity will never bring prosperity to any country, society, establishment, or individual.

In a corporate environment, failing to comply with laws and regulations leads to expensive lawsuits, fines, business disruptions, loss of brand reputation, and abandonment by customers and stakeholders. By adhering to regulatory and operational compliances, you insulate yourself from risk and lay the framework for sustainable and smooth operation in all areas across your business.
