Regulatory Mapping with forward thinking

29 July 2022

How does a large organization stay on top of all relevant regulations? Mindcrest can help. 

Every company worries about compliance. Are they aware of the laws that apply to them and what must they do to comply with those laws? What if the legal or compliance team misses a compliance requirement? For large, multinational companies, keeping up with the hundreds of jurisdictions they operate in can be a drain on resources, time-consuming and — without a proper system in place — can lead to missed regulations.

Trusting Mindcrest with Regulatory Mapping can save your legal or compliance team the stress of trying to keep up with ever-changing requirements.

What is Regulatory Mapping?

Regulatory Mapping involves identifying applicable laws, matching them to your business activities and identifying what you must do to comply with those laws. However, Regulatory Mapping is not just a one time task. Laws change constantly, at different times and in multiple States or countries. 

Why Regulatory Mapping is Important

When laws change you may need to take action quickly. For example, many organizations with a presence in the European Union needed to amend their contracts when GDPR first took effect and then again as new requirements were added through amendments such as the use of new Standard Contractual Clauses. The legal or compliance function will also benefit from a holistic look at laws and regulations affecting the business across multiple countries, so it can identify the right internal or external resources to take appropriate action to comply with those laws. Failure to do so can subject a company to penalties, fines and other negative consequences for non-compliance.
