SAI Global has launched a new tool for compliance professionals to better understand where Australian Standards are referenced in Australian legislation.
There are approximately 4,814 references in Australian legislation and regulations to 2,102 different Australian Standards. The LexConnect module for the Lawlex service provides anywhere, anytime understanding of the specific Australian Standards referred to in Commonwealth, State and Territory legislation and regulations.
Users can easily search by Standard to see if it is referenced in legislation or regulation and where, or browse legislation and regulations to see if and where Australian Standards are referenced.
According to Martijn Laguna, Executive General Manager, SAI Global, the LexConnect concept came from clients representing various industries, who sought to gain a fuller understanding of the practical options open to them in complying with certain Australian legal or regulatory obligations.
The LexConnect module is an important resource for every organisation seeking to compete and comply in an increasingly regulated environment.
This current release of the LexConnect service is for SAI Global Regulatory Knowledge clients using the Lawlex service.
