White Paper


An effective obligations register is a vital tool in the administration of governance, obligations awareness, risk management and compliance. This white paper proposes both the structure of a comprehensive obligations register and a strategy for populating it.

Key Points

  1. A comprehensive obligations register is an organisation-wide single source of truth for all mandatory and voluntary obligations, capturing all relevant information in a simple and logical way.
  2. Obligations are a complex cascade of interdependencies.
