Federal Regulations

Sign, graphics and visual communications companies must follow many federal rules and regulations related to running a business. Many of these federal regulations have to do with protecting the health and safety of employees, including crane safety certification and other OSHA requirements.

In order to avoid costly penalties and promote safety in the workplace, ISA has developed the below resources to help sign & graphics companies more clearly understand and more easily comply with these federal regulations.

ISA is actively working to reduce regulations and help sign companies be in compliance.

Complying with U.S. federal regulations costs manufacturers $29,100 per employee per year ($50,100 per employee for small manufacturers), according to  NAM. This means that a small manufacturing firm with 20 employees bears around $1 million in compliance costs.
