Policies and procedures are a set of documents that describe an organization's policies for operation and the procedures necessary to fulfil the policies. They are often initiated because of an external requirement, such as environmental compliance or other governmental regulations.

Policies and procedures have many names including but not limited to business policies and procedures, standard operating procedures or SOP, or department operating procedures or DOP.Policy and procedure writing often uses a standard format within an organization, including a complete history of changes made to the document. Typically, the format includes a purpose, persons affected, scope, sometimes a background section, a policy section, definitions, responsibilities, and a procedures section. The format when put into a template can also include information about the title, effective date, revision date, and an approval section.The Need for Policies & ProceduresThere are four very basic reasons that necessitate writing policies and procedures.

1. Operational needs

Policies and procedures ensure that fundamental organizational processes are performed in a consistent way that meets the organization's needs.

2. Risk management

Established policies and procedures are identified by the Risk Committee within an organisation as a control activity needed to manage risk.

3. Continuous improvement

Procedures can improve existing processes by implementing a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach by building important internal communication practices.

4. Compliance

Well-defined and documented processes (i.e. procedures, training materials) along with records that demonstrate process capability can demonstrate an effective internal control system compliant with regulations and standards.

R&D Consulting Ltd can assist organisations to achieve compliance and reduce risk.
