    The correct answer is Option C:


    The employees at GIA are not responsible for detailed knowledge of applicable laws; that responsibility lies with the compliance department and GIA’s legal counsel.

    Faider’s summary, which highlights how the changes will affect GIA’s employees, complies with Standard I(A).

    Standard IV(C) is not applicable as Faider’s actions do not fall under supervisors’ responsibilities.
