“Transparency and compliance with the law are factors of further development,”Christian Wolff

As the global GRC – Governance Risk Compliance – market grows each year, companies leverage GRC, if implemented properly, as a way to help companies become more successful. One of the components of GRC is regulatory change management. Regulatory Change Management in its simplest definition is “Managing regulatory, policy, and or procedure changes that apply to your organization for your industry.”

We have discussed in detail regarding Why do we need GRC Technology?

Regulatory Change Management Process

Leading GRC Analyst – Michael Rasmussen – states that regulatory change management is one of the biggest increasing pain points. The regulatory ecosystem is getting more complex as the government and industry bodies change laws, regulations and industry requirements constantly. Being on top of the rapidly changing regulations is one of the problems many organizations face today.Noncompliance with the regulations has devastating results; compliance violations are very costly for the business and worse, result to negative impacts. There is a need to establish processes in order to solve these underlying problems and to make companies more attentive of the improvement that has to be made in today’s highly regulated market.

The Top Pain Points of Regulatory Change Management:

  • Manual Documentation and Process Management opens more door to human error
  • Passing audits
  • There is no sophisticated and scalable way to manage regulations, the tracking of updates to ensure compliance with the latest standards and regulations, and understanding the changes
  • Process and workflow management
  • Policy and procedures management – content such as policies and procedures are not efficiently disseminated and communicated across the enterprise
