In our direction, your business will be kept within the regulatory guidelines. You will be provided with compliance checks1, documentation and tools you will need to achieve compliance and ensure you stay that way.
With this setup, you receive compliance training and feedback soon after each file is submitted to us; compared with direct authorisation alternative and the other networks where you would receive periodic compliance visits and if they do not like what they see, they will take punitive action.
