I have no fear of these types of bureaucrats. If someone can't put a valid regulatory concern in front of me, I will ignore pointless paper controls and let them argue with my results.
It wasn't code related but I went through a system like that once where another department inserted themselves into a decision making / action / no action process.
So we just went about our business and a ton of shit stacked up waiting on them.
Angry management meeting occurred where they were "Why aren't you guys doing things?"
We just noted that we did, but we were waiting on approval from other department to actually do it.
Other department was now the villain and sales, management went after them for not doing their part / holding everyone up / not realizing how much work they would have. Admittedly, a few people spammed them a little ... but they weren't even responding to those.
Process was changed pretty fast.
Our approach was basically "You want in on this rodeo, fine..."
If you're the timid, hat in hand type keeping your head down all the time, sure. I've never been relieved of my position for any time I've made a command decision in the interest of the business, and I've worked for some of the largest companies on the planet.
The trick is to never be wrong. No one argues with success.
What is it with DTC dwellers and passive aggressive condescension anyways? Is it just a Colorado thing or what?
I mean, rather than try and have a conversation, you open with "you'll get fired at real companies for challenging policy." How do you expect someone to reply to that?
