Operational controls in an environmental management system (EMS) reduce the risk that the organization will not achieve its environmental objectives. Operational controls are the processes that management implements to provide reasonable assurances that the organization will achieve its environmental objectives.
Not-for-profits and internal controls often have an uneasy relationship. On the one hand, many not-for-profits, especially the smaller ones, lack the resources to implement robust internal controls. Yet internal controls are as critical in not-for-profits as in for-profit entities. In some respects, internal control failures can be more catastrophic for not-for-profits because the public, regulators, and others often hold them to a higher standard.
Electronic monitoring of employees and the approach that employers take is typically a reflection of management styles. Employee and electronic monitoring are not new.

The changes received royal assent on April 11, 2022, and require compliance by October 11, 2022.
