Computer screen Managing regulatory change

Despite the proliferation of digital information channels, managing regulatory change remains a major concern for businesses and industries at large. The true impact of a new regulation may only become clear to a company so close to the regulatory deadline that they simply do not have enough time to address their compliance obligations.

Companies must quickly process government publications, industry announcements and news updates, and then understand how it relates to their product portfolio before change management can even begin. This process is complex, resource-heavy, and slow; where inefficiencies create missed opportunities, additional resource costs, and even fines due to non-compliance.

The LOLI® Database

UL’s industry-leading LOLI® Regulatory Database (List of Lists) is an unprecedented, high-quality structured source of information that connects the restrictions and conditions in regulations to the chemical substances and families to which they apply.

As government and advisory agencies (as well as advocacy groups and brands) issue their policies in many languages and formats, which are then dispersed online and via various physical mediums, LOLI® is a single and structured source for the substance-specific data points you need for hazard assessment and product compliance around the world.

LOLI® Illuminator is the latest evolution in access to the LOLI® Database, providing personalized views and automated change alerts for chemical regulatory data, including a ‘radar’ for monitoring your substances of concern.
