Fundamental to compliance in project excellence is a thorough understanding of government laws, regulations and industry standards. This course will review several industries and those laws, regulations and industry standards that impact document management.
Establishing a comprehensive document management program, for both small and large firms, requires a thorough understanding of industry specific laws, regulations and standards that outline data and documentation to be generated, tracked, and retained.
Document controllers, either temporary or permanent, who intend to work in construction related industries (Oil & Gas, Utility, Commercial Construction, etc.) will benefit from an understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of regulatory and industry standards compliance.
SEC, FDA, CSA, ABSA, and others, are entities throughout North America that outline requirements. This course will comprehensively review a broad range of industries, narrowing the focus on Canadian Oil & Gas. Further, with laws, regulations, and standards always growing and changing, students will be taught on how to work with various organizations to establish an enterprise document management framework that aligns project excellence compliance requirements.
