There is so much time wasted putting together "new" requirements to deal with a supposed lack of existing requirements. I would much rather see enforcement of current regs than duplicates.

Let me explain better. More and more regulations have resulted in a FLOOD of documents that we need to "understand," some of those documents being explanations of others. There is so much paperwork that IMO we would be much better off streamlining the process and cutting back on the number of docs we need to comprehend. Maybe if the paperwork was not such a towering pile more people would actually take the time to read what they sign. Too few do that now, and I don't think adding more steps will encourage more to do so. Instead, they will let others take the responsibility to feed them pablum.
