Complinet's Regulatory Calendar is an innovative solution for the financial services regulatory community. Users now have the power to:
• reliably track regulatory changes in the US, UK, other capital markets;
• easily identify key regulatory dates; and
• seamlessly access related rules and regulations.
This date-driven Calendar alerts users to forthcoming regulatory changes, key submission dates, consultation periods and the status of implementation.
It forms part of Complinet’s growing “Know-How” content, which uniquely attaches best-practice guidance to live rules and regulations. Users have the ability to personalize a number of different parameters and organize the compliance year ahead by regulator, identifying ”key” dates and events with links to specific editorial commentary.
The Calendar uses a combination of Complinet's innovative time-travel functionality -- a feature that allows subscribers to Complinet's Rulebooks service to view a particular rulebook at any forward or past date - and Complinet's comprehensive editorial resources. Users can choose to see all forthcoming changes over a date range or select the default option to highlight the key developments as chosen by Complinet’s in-house specialists.
Users simply select their required rulebook or statute from a current list of 25, choose their date range and submit their query. Results shown are linked directly to the rulebook or statute that is affected. The Regulatory Calendar covers developments affecting the regulated financial services sectors in the UK, the US and the Middle East, as well as selected regulators from European countries, Hong Kong and elsewhere. Sector coverage includes banking, securities, insurance and commodities, as well as EU directives and significant changes in the spheres of corporate governance, exchange, company and commercial regulation.
Alex Viall, Director, Editorial said: “The Calendar is proving extremely popular with all the practitioners who are now using it. The real value is in being able to customize the content based on the type of business an organization does and the number of regulators that organization answers to. Compliance and legal staff can look ahead to major regulatory change with much more efficiency and confidence now. They can also access the actual proposals and rules very quickly and get practical guidance on how to deal with them all in one place.”
