Groundbreaking Regulatory Alert Service Leverages Applicability to Deliver EHS Compliance Assurance
Cleveland, OH (May 20, 2013) – Dakota Software is pleased to announce the addition of a Regulatory Alert Service to their ProActivity™ Suite of Environmental, Health, & Safety (EHS) compliance and sustainability management tools. This new capability is unique in the EHS market, allowing EHS professionals to receive automated notifications when relevant and meaningful regulatory changes are published in the Federal Register.
Using proprietary Decision-Tree-Logic℠, Dakota’s ProActivity Suite guides users in the creation of unique Compliance Profiles and prompts continued compliance by indicating when recent regulatory changes affect specific profiles. The Regulatory Alert Service extends the power of this applicability-based compliance framework by notifying users via email of new and forthcoming requirements in order to help them better prepare for the changes.
“We have already found the alerts to be beneficial,” said Rhonda Morphew, Environmental Analyst for East Kentucky Power Cooperative. “An alert we received last week notified us that the EPA had finalized a Significant New Use Rule which will be effective at the end of the month. It also showed us that six of our 102 Compliance Profiles will potentially be impacted. This prompted us to examine these profiles and take proactive measures to ensure compliance.”
Each Regulatory Alert provides users with a high-level summary of the latest proposed rules, final rules, and other action-forcing changes as interpreted by Dakota's team of regulatory experts. The email alerts, which are available daily, weekly or monthly, also contain lists of affected citations, hyperlinks to full text regulations, and a list of all applicable Dakota Compliance Profiles. This unique, new offering will help EHS professionals pinpoint exactly where and when action is required and extends Dakota's vision of proactive compliance further than ever before.
