International Offices - Local & UK legislation

We are currently reviewing the way in which internationally based colleagues meet our Group H&S policy (uk) but also take into account local legislation and specific requirements i.e. data protection.

Can anyone with overseas offices share their process as to how they identify local legislation and requirements and then develop this into International arrangements (procedures) ensuring they meet a UK minimum standard but also meet local requirements?

How do you then record this information so itís available to colleagues based internationally. Do you provide the policy and arrangements in English and the local language?
