Regulatory Response

Redefining the value of regulation

Regulation is part of business as usual. The way a business responds is key in determining the extent to which regulation is a burden or an opportunity. In a challenging business environment, where trust and transparency are highly prized, a well-executed, efficient, appropriate and communicated response to all stakeholders on regulatory matters can bring about significant benefits and opportunities.

What good looks like

These are the fundamentals that need to be in place:

  • Strategic engagement with regulatory bodies; board level understanding of the regulatory landscape, horizon and strategic impact.
  • Regulatory resilience is not viewed as a one-off activity or initiative; it is part of business as usual.
  • An outcome-based focus on regulatory compliance, making maximum use of process, controls and enablers.
  • Looking beyond your organization’s boundaries to give due consideration to the extended enterprise and the responsibilities of third parties.

When to act

There are logical triggers in your business activities that prompt action. Here are some examples:

  • Introduction of new regulation.
  • High profile regulatory issues within your sector.
  • Known issues in your own performance linked to regulation.
  • Any major change impacting areas covered by regulation and where you invite the scrutiny of a new set of regulators and stakeholders.

Being seen as a regulatory high performer is a great way to be viewed by your regulator.
