Good practices

Decree 81 refers in several articles to the importance of good practice: to underline its usefulness whether there are no specific rules or guidelines addressing a specific problem or when they can be introduced into a company with the aim of increasing their level of safety, thanks to the experience of others.

In Italy, the body that deals with the "validation" of good practices worthy of disclosure is the Permanent Advisory Committee.
