Legal registers create the basis for a legally secure organization and are required by operational management systems. Our legal register contains all the legal provisions relevant to a company and conforms to ISO standards for “binding obligations” and compliance.
Why do companies need legal registers? Also known as a legal directory and legal register, these systems create the basis for a legally secure organization and are required by operational management systems. The legislator requires companies to comply with the relevant regulations.
However, legal certainty and legal conformity can only be established comprehensively if, on the one hand, all laws and regulations relevant to an organization are known and, on the other hand, they are constantly updated. For this purpose, it makes sense to keep a legal register. As a legal register, the legal register depicts the relevant laws and regulations that affect an organization. It is a good way to record and manage the legal requirements of an organization in a structured way and to communicate them to the responsible employees.
We support the development and continuous maintenance of individually created legal registers for the development of a legally secure organization. The main focus is on avoiding organizational fault, i.e. a violation of organizational obligations or non-compliance with legal requirements for operational organizational measures. Tort law regulates that liability or culpability for damage that occurs in the sphere of an organization is assigned to the organization. This can also affect the responsible managing director/board of directors. If damage occurs, the injured party is entitled to compensation.
In terms of legal certainty and legal compliance, it is now almost mandatory to keep a professional legal register to minimize the entrepreneurial risk in order to avoid liability cases resulting from organizational fault. Especially since many management systems generally require “documented information” that all relevant regulations, legal obligations and other requirements in the company are recognized and fulfilled.
This results, for example, from the ISO 45001 standard (occupational health and safety management). The standard details those legal obligations relevant to the management system that an organization must fulfil. Among other things, the importance of compliance is pointed out for the management system for safety and health at work (SGA system). This is mentioned in the success factors as a key factor for the realization and maintenance of an SGA management system in order to increase the effectiveness and ability to achieve the goals. The intended results of an SGA management system thus include the fulfillment of legal obligations.
The legal registers developed by us can be used in a modular or scalable manner. This allows you to keep a constant overview of the company-relevant legal bases, approval notices and other binding obligations – from the individual creation and regular updating of the regulations to checking the internal implementation as part of a compliance audit. Based on an on-site analysis of your operational circumstances, our legal cadastre provides you with the legal provisions from the relevant areas of law, the essential operator obligations as recommendations for action – translated into practice for your employees. The possibility of delegating relevant regulations and implementation obligations to individual employees ensures transparency and promotes the necessary sense of responsibility.
In general, knowledge of the relevant regulations for ordinary business activities is one of the basic duties of every management board. In the eyes of the law, no distinction is made between small and large companies. In addition, there are special obligations of the management, for example in environmental law. With our legal cadastre, we help ensure that the company has all the necessary official permits and that existing permits are adapted to operational changes if the company is expanded or the mode of production has been changed. In this way we ensure that the management complies with all legal requirements and comprehensively fulfills the binding obligations. Thus, as a form of risk management, a legal cadastre can fulfill certain duties of orderly management and largely reduce liability risks. The basis for a legal register is always the knowledge of how the company is affected by individual legal areas.
