APTA's Regulatory Affairs staff are here to answer your questions on regulatory compliance, laws, and any other quasi-legal issues you might be facing. Although we can't offer legal advice, we conduct research on member inquiries to ensure that you have accurate, up-to-date information for informed decision-making.

We see great value, as well, in educating members on how best to find their own answers to commonly encountered questions. So, let's take a look at the basics of researching regulatory and compliance issues.
