Drill into the details of how your obligations have changed. Every obligation is presented at its most granular level, meaning the individual action that your firm must take (or refrain from taking) in order to be compliant. Each obligation is accompanied by crucial data such as the rule number it came from (giving you utmost transparency and traceability) and the effective date.
