Compliance.net is a DMR initiative.
DMR has been an information and technology company since 1969. Today, regulatory compliance forms an important challenge to many of DMR's clients. DMR
Business responsibilities have changed. The management of compliance, be it regulatory, financial or safety, is now a multi-faceted task.
Internal systems for compliance have become an important part of DMR's services to its clients, and a factor for success.
DMR operates regulatory publishing services to both inform and manage parts of the compliance cycle.
We seek to work with partners and regulatory organisations to maximise the effectiveness of our services.
Compliance.net is a regulatory compliance service. Its aim is to help organisations manage their compliance obligations both passively, through the provision of information; and actively, by managing compliance tasks for them.
Newspapers and business organisations frequently refer to the increasing effect of regulations and the administrative load placed on businesses. Regulations come from all directions. Many begin as European Community directives; some for market harmonisation; some for ecological or environmental purposes; and many as health and safety initiatives. Outside of these, we see increasing emphasis on financial and procedural controls that impact all levels of business.
This trend is not going to go away; compliance is not optional; failure to comply can seriously damage your business.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (2000 c.36), came into force on 1 January 2005. It introduced a public "right to know" in relation to public bodies and implemented a 1997 Labour Party general election manifesto commitment.
Coming under the Lord Chancellor's Ministry of Justice, the Act is already having widespread effect on data protection issues under the renamed office of the Information Commissioner which oversees the operation of the Act.
