A Really Helpful Regulatory Change Tool

by French Caldwell  |  October 26, 2012  |  Comments Off

One of the questions I get all the time is, “Where can I find what regulations apply to me?”  I talked this morning to Fred Diers who has created GRMpedia which tracks regulations and their retention and reporting requirements.   Regs tracked include, marketing, finance, research and development, EHS, contracts, leases, IP, governance, HR and others.  Tracking 26 countries, all the provinces in Canada, states in Aus and NZ, SEZ’s in China, major treaties in EU, NAFTA, etc.  Total over 11K regs in US and over 8K outside US – this compares to 400 total in the UCF, for instance.  Of course UCF services a different purpose for IT controls architecture and audit.

For people trying to solve records retention or regulatory change management GRMpedia looks really helpful.
