Exercising Due Diligence

The complexity of risks requires that a business takes a serious, coordinated and planned approach to their management responsibilities.

There is a strong focus placed on Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBUs’) including directors and officers, liability, the concept existing across the corporate, environmental and work health and safety areas. Significantly, “Due Diligence” is now a specific defence for directors and managers to personal criminal liability. Whilst proper due diligence depends on the specific situation, in most respects it is understood to be the converse of negligence and is sometimes referred to as “reasonable and practical measures”.

It is a question of fact whether a “reasonable person” took the precautions that ought to have been taken. It is no answer for a person to say that he or she did his or her best given his or her particular abilities, resources and  circumstances.
