Pursuant to the new standards we are following as laid out by SASB, we report on non-compliance with regulations resulting in a fine or penalty. Because “warnings” are an undefined term that can be so broad as a letter inquiring about paperwork due or ambiguities in reporting data, we do not report where we do not have sufficient specificity in the category requested. No voluntary compliance codes are applicable.
