Regulatory Compliance is organization’s conformation to some laws and regulations relevant to its business. These laws are created by regulatory authorities like State Bank of Pakistan creates regulatory laws for financial authorities in Pakistan. Currently, all financial institutions create compliance programs to handle the compliance of the organizations where manual work is done for identifying non-compliance and controlling it.
