Legal & Regulatory

When new laws are passed in the United States, PCPC shifts its focus from advocacy to engaging with regulatory agencies that guide and implement the laws. PCPC’s regulatory and legal team monitors existing and proposed regulations at both the state and federal level. The team also interprets public policy to help member companies better understand the impact of regulations on their businesses.
