Managed Compliance Services

Performing and tracking compliance obligations is time-consuming. Time and resources are limited. AESI can lead and manage one or more compliance activities on behalf of an organization.

  • Quarterly Compliance Briefings – Keep informed of what’s happening in the regulatory landscape. The briefing provides a summary and analysis of information that is important to your organization, as well as a summary of actions to take as a result of the impending changes. AESI hosts a quarterly conference call to walk your team through the essential items in the briefing, answer any questions, and assign resulting tasks as necessary. The Regulatory Compliance Briefing summarizes and prioritizes important and relevant regulatory information for the following events and items:
    • Important Dates: Lists applicable requirements coming into force with their effective dates or related implementation plan dates, as well other upcoming important dates
