Keeping Your Regulator Happy

In many industries (nuclear, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, healthcare, aviation, and many others), an unhappy regulator means a bad day. 

What do you need to do to keep a regulator happy? 

First, regulators hate surprises. There’s nothing worse to a regulator than hearing about a accident at one of their regulated facilities. Or hearing that one of their products has injured someone. 

If you can prevent surprises, you will have a happy regulator.

Next, if something does go wrong, regulators expect a thorough and credible root cause analysis that includes proposing effective corrective actions that will keep the problem from happening again. (Regulators hate repeat problems.)

That’s why TapRooT® has been an important part of performance improvement programs at companies in regulated industries including the nuclear industry, pharmaceuticals, aviation, and healthcare.

First, it helps the companies develop effective corrective actions for the problems they are having.

Second, by investigating and fixing incidents that have a potential for more serious outcomes, the companies prevent major accidents (surprises for their regulator).
