In regard to physical tape/drive backups, what are the mandatory regulations relating to data backup. I'm aware of standards such as FDA and SOX compliance, but I believe they are voluntary compliance standards, not mandatory, such as the data protection act. Currently, I physically take a tape backup each night, in protection against damage/destruction to the main office - so does my accommodation need to be compliant in any way?

SOX and others are mandatory depending on circumstances like if you are a public company traded on U.S. stock markets.

First thing first, DBA responsibility is to make sure databases are recoverable no matter what happens.

Looking a little forward, DBA should be member of Business Continuity commetee therefore ensuring Business Continuity in case of a catastrophic event - SLA are Business side driven in this case.

Hope this helps.
