Once a company signs a CIA they are bound to the terms of the agreement and if the provision includes the sign-off on quarterly notifications, then the company would be obligated to disclose any compliance or non-compliance activities. As I mentioned in my initial discussion post, we can’t really control other people and how they conduct themselves despite the number of rules that are set implemented to control misconduct. I also agree with you, not only it would be an enormous effort to ensure all employees are in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations, but the expense can be damaging. However, compliance could even be costlier if a company is found liable for violating the law. In

Though largely opposed by human rights activists, the privatization of water has benefits that far outweigh the cons. These private companies offer the water sector greater fiscal responsibility that will keep one of the most important elements on earth readily available for the long term future, as well as the
