This book demonstrates lessons on a research work of pre and post-disaster planning with particular reference to housing by using qualitative research methodology. Regulators assume that enforcement is only restricted to the specification in regulations. Consequently, the trend in enforcement is towards prescriptive detail without any efforts to minimise loopholes in organisations’ administration. Administration is human factors that may affect the decision-making capacity. The overall research objective is to determine the present attitudes of Malaysia’s actors towards the implementation of the ‘Policy and Mechanism on National Disaster and Relief Management’. The regulatory compliance to the Malaysia National Security Council MNSC directive 20 programme in this policy is a key focus. Gathered actors’ perspectives in the implementation of regulatory compliance in all level of disaster management system in Malaysia helps to explain the reason of regulatory compliance failures. This Malaysian case study is an important example, not just for the country but the region as an example of a developing country icon.
