		4.5 Unintended consequences
			The comprehensiveness of the elements may be overwhelming for some organisations and could undermine their compliance efforts.
			An inability to comply with all elements could dissuade organisations from implementing any of them.
			The burden of compliance could put the viability and/or services of some organisations at risk.
			Responsibility for child safety may fall to one individual rather than shared throughout the organisation.
			Compliance could become a procedural ‘tick-box’ process, rather than creating genuine change.
