  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.

    Strong oversight of corporate security and risk-taking is surely one of the most critical component of companies’ management process.

  • Certificate vs. Declaration of Conformity: What to Choose?

    Most Ukrainian companies have become accustomed to the fact that since 1 January 2018 the state certification system no longer exists in Ukraine. The compulsory certification abolishment, the transition to voluntary certification, and the application of technical regulations are part of the technical regulation system reform. Ukrainian manufacturers and importers therefore wonder: which document should be used to certify the conformity of products – a certificate of conformity or a declaration of conformity?
