Monitor and measure compliance with policies, procedures and regulations

OverviewKey FeaturesBenefitsBrochure

Compliance with policies and procedures can be a significant challenge for E&P organisations. The need to handle internal policy, industry best practise and government regulations creates a challenging environment in which to define and maintain multiple compliance requirements and effectively track adherence.

Requirements are defined in a best-practise process that identifies the deliverables required for compliance together with links to the appropriate internal or external policy, procedures or regulations. Once a deliverable has been created, its delivery is tracked, links are maintained and audit trail of compliance is created.

  • Publishes documents to their relevant EDMS e.g. SharePoint, Documentum and Livelink - complete with metadata to aid future search and retrieval
  • Creates an audit trail
  • Provides dashboard views and metrics across multiple projects
  • Sends automatic notifications, reminders and alarms
  • Fully integrated with Flare’s Information Foundation - Links to Search, Actions, Risk Register, Lessons and Notifications

  • Makes compliance requirements readily visible within the organisation to make it easier for teams to comply
  • Reduces time to project start by leveraging best practise compliance processes for projects
