PEC Modules Compliance Management System (CMS)
What is a Compliance Management System?
A Compliance Management System (or CMS) enables you to demonstrate conformity to regulatory and industry standards, as well as corporate codes and best practice. A CMS covers all aspects of compliance, including trade and product compliance, addressing environmental, social and governance risks. It is an integrated system of documentation, processes, people and tools to meet legal requirements and deliver stakeholder expectations efficiently and effectively.
Why is a Compliance Management System necessary?
A CMS enables you to implement your compliance values through key performance indicators. Having an effective CMS in place enables you to improve the sustainability of your business by identifying and managing risks and improving opportunities. It demonstrates good governance to investors, customers, employees and regulators, enhancing your reputation and credibility.
Why is an automated solution necessary?
An automated solution will minimise the resources required to manage compliance by improving data quality, data analysis, reporting and communication. A software solution can also integrate with other business processes and operational requirements, including auditing, training and emergency planning.
Our CMS software solution
Our Compliance Management System allows you to maintain a register of global legislation and standards with summaries of requirements, contacts and links tailored to your business as well as key deliverables for tracking compliance at multiple levels:
- Corporate and/or company level
- Site and/or facility level
- Project and/or business unit level
- Product level
It can be used by your legal team to manage and keep up-to-date with current and forthcoming legislation. It can also be used to identify compliance obligations for key sites or products and associated actions. These actions can then be tracked and reported on to enable management decision-making.

Our CMS is fully integrated with other Compliance Map modules as deliverables can be linked to policies, due diligence practices, compliance verdicts and audit status information contained in the system.
