About the Compliance register

Use the Compliance register to schedule critical activities to meet legal, contractual and regulatory compliance obligations.

Compliance Workflow

The Stage Navigation Bar displays the workflow stages that the compliance task will follow once scheduled. 

  1. Compliance details - In this stage you describe the compliance task, define the instructions, link associated documents, schedule the frequency of the task, and assign who will complete and close the compliance task. These details only need to be set once as the information is automatically copied to the next occurrence of the task in the schedule.      
  2. Action stage - In this stage the Action officer completes the compliance task. Progress notes can also be made and records can be attached. 
  3. Close stage - In this stage the Approval officer will close the task or delegate further action if required.

When you navigate to the Compliance register the following tabs are displayed:

In progress Displays compliance tasks currently in progress and assigned to a user.

Compliance details form tabs

The Compliance details form comprises two tabs:

Description Contains the details and schedule of the compliance task.  For a full description of the details form and programming a schedule, click on the following article: Schedule a compliance task
Series Displays all the audits in the series as per the schedule. (see Form series component description below)

Series tab

All the compliance tasks in the series are listed including closed, current and the next upcoming compliance task not yet assigned.  The list also shows any records attached to the compliance task.  

Tip:  The Series tab is a valuable tool for quickly assessing a compliance schedule. It provides a comprehensive overview of completed compliance tasks, the current status of open compliance tasks, and the upcoming compliance in the series. By utilising this tab, you can identify overdue tasks and be sure that your are working on the correct compliance task in the series. 

Compliance Schedule

This component enables you to schedule your compliance task and set the frequency. You can program once off compliance tasks or program a series with a recurring schedule.

Closing and skipping a compliance item.

The Schedule component also allows you to close the current compliance task and skip to the next in the series.  This is useful if a task has been missed and the next in the series has been generated.  Learn more.

You can also choose to close and halt the compliance schedule which will close the current task and prevent future tasks in the series being generated.  Note:  If other compliance tasks in the series have been generated, they will need to be closed off.  Learn more.
