1. Thereare many similarities between a law and a statute, however, a statute can onlybe made by federal or state. When it comes to a law it can be enforced by city,county, state or federal. You always have to obey a law because they are meantto protect us, and our rights. They are there to set boundaries, and if we failto obey the law then there will be consequences.
However, you don’t not have toobey statutes because you can withdrawal your consent of being governed by asociety. If you were to do that then you would lose benefits from that societywhich might not be worth doing in some cases. Many people think of laws asstatutes, however, they are not because they do not protect us like a law theyare there to “control”.
When it comes to regulations they are not laws buthowever have the force of a law. They can be made by any governmental agenciesby city, state, or federal. They give public notice about regulations that arein process by publishing them on a governmental journal. Regulations are viewedas trying to dictate behavior and trying to prevent something bad fromhappening. A standard is very different from the rest because it is veryconsensus built, meaning that groups of people can come together to make a ruleor a guideline.
The biggest thing is that once a standard is made then it isvery difficult to change them. So, I would compare this to be more a “rule” becauseyou “must” follow it, in order to be perceived acceptable. When thinking aboutwhat a “rule” is I believe it to be something that you should follow and if youdon’t there can definitely be consequences although not all the time.
At work,there are always “rules’ you must follow however I believe they like to use amore sophisticated term as standards that I must follow. Whether which term youchoose to use, rule or standard, I believe that would have equal repercussions.
