Automated monitoring of regulatory changes with "RegMonitoring by Deloitte"

An effective compliance management system must provide complete and accurate information about changes in legal regulations and legal situations - in all relevant jurisdictions. Up-to-date information on legal developments, checked for quality by legal advisors, is an elementary factor here. In this way, management is secured in liability matters and (also criminal) sanctions can be avoided. "RegMonitoring by Deloitte" offers a comprehensive solution for these challenges.

Extensive compliance requirements for today's companies

Many legal departments worldwide must filter, process and evaluate legally relevant developments from a wide variety of information sources. Particularly in internationally operating companies, this leads to enormously large volumes of data that are difficult to manage. The resulting challenges are manifold:

  •  Unclear data situation: The different ways of obtaining information result in information asymmetries and extensive steering and structuring efforts.
  • Lack of standardization: In the absence of standardized processes, it is often not possible to allocate information correctly and delegate implementation tasks efficiently. Valuable findings do not benefit the optimization and learning processes.
  • Difficulty in tracking individual actions: There is no system for following up on context-specific measures taken. This makes it difficult to monitor implementation and prevents the provision of conclusive reports on activities and results in the area of legal risk management.
