Every year approximately 1 500 new legislative enactments are given in Finland. These include acts, government decrees and decisions.

It takes a lot of effort to cope with all requirements that a certain business operator must comply with. Timely information on legislation is not enough in itself – It is also vital to be aware of any future regulatory changes. Good and timely compliance results in a succesful business.
