Due to changes to economic policy and process optimisations, the MI industry is constantly being called on to comply with requirements owing to the conformity of a wide range of production mechanisms. The most important goal in this is to comply with the required standards of a social, ethics or content-related context without compromising the individuality and thus economic viability of each company. A constant critical analysis for new decision-making processes and attitudes in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and corporate ethics assumes submitting to and complying with regulations (VO) and legally relevant directives in the marketplace and society.

The Society Of Music Merchants provides its members, in good time, with key information about compliance with legal measures, while also expanding its ties to decision-makers in government and science so it can help shape process developments in future.
