Regulatory Tracking

RegsTrack - Let StateScape connect the dots for you.

StateScape’s RegsTrack service enables your organization to keep up to date with the latest regulatory developments. Our highly experienced analysts specialize in navigating complex regulatory processes and in keeping you informed of the critical and time-sensitive information that you need to effectively influence the rulemaking process.

What sets our regulatory coverage apart is the manner in which it is organized and the specialized knowledge of our analysts. Each state possesses its own, unique administrative procedures act which outlines the steps that must be taken when adopting or amending a regulation. A familiarity with and understanding of these complex and varying state procedures is a critical component of being able to accurately track a rulemaking action from proposal to adoption. Our RegsTrack service allows you to harness the knowledge we’ve built up through years of monitoring regulatory developments, and put it to work for your organization.

Our unique reporting system provides you with a snapshot of the entire rulemaking process and ensures that you always know the current status of a regulatory proposal. We provide you with every available piece of supporting documentation that each state provides, which allows you to keep apprised of critical information such as comment deadlines, hearing dates, and other scheduled actions.

StateScape offers four levels of service to meet your regulatory tracking needs and budget. All of the options described below are Analyst Filtered (Standard or Custom).

Registers:  Registers are each geographic region’s official publication for rulemaking notices. With over 150 register publications issued per month by the 50 states, the federal government, and the territories, our register coverage saves you time by ensuring that you view only the rulemaking actions that are relevant to you.

Agencies:  Our agency coverage is an early-warning system which gives you access to important regulatory notices before they are published in the state registers. StateScape allows you to tailor your coverage so that you can focus in on the administrative agencies of your choice. This level of service also enables you to view important non-rulemaking notices, such as advisories, circulars, and bulletins, which are released only on agency websites and never in the state registers.

Meetings:  Many agencies and boards hold regular public meetings in which preliminary, informal discussions of impending rulemaking proceedings take place. With this level of service, StateScape provides you with the earliest possible notice of upcoming regulatory changes that will affect your organization’s interests.

Compliance:  If your regulatory needs are compliance-driven, we can make sure that you only receive notice of relevant regulations upon adoption. This level of service saves you both time and money.
