The Department of Tourism functions within the National legislative environment. As such there are acts and policies which impact on the department and to which it must comply.
Compliance is the process by which an organization observes and complies with external and statutory laws and regulations.
Any compliance exercise must be underpinned by a Compliance Framework which sets out in a structured and organized manner what Acts, laws, regulations, codes and practices must be complied with. Policy watch entails identifying which legislation pertains to the Tourism Sector and results in the development of a Compliance Framework for the sector.
