Compliance Risk Management Begins with the Promontory Compliance Obligations Library

The Promontory Compliance Obligations Library is an online database of the laws, regulations, and guidance affecting banks, broker-dealers, and other financial institutions.

Keep Pace with Changing
Compliance Obligations

On average, the U.S. government publishes more than 75,000 pages of new regulations each year:

  • How many of them affected your organization?
  • Which of your existing compliance risk management and control standards do you need to update?
  • How will you track new regulations in the coming years?

Promontory’s commitment to maintaining a comprehensive and current obligations library allows subscribers to focus on compliance and be confident that the latest laws and regulations are at their fingertips.

The Library is part of Promontory’s innovative Web-based RADAR compliance platform, and can function independently or integrate with other RADAR modules.

Customize, Certify, and Track Your Compliance Obligations

Promontory’s innovative RADAR compliance platform can integrate Compliance Obligations Library content with risk control standards to provide a real-time picture of which obligations are covered by a control and which need attention.

The Library allows you to select the obligations that apply to your business and hide those that do not.

Map Obligations to Your Business Units and Products

Compliance obligations influence each of your business units and product lines differently. The Compliance Obligations Library allows you to attach an obligation to every business unit or product that it affects.
