Regulatory Forecasting℠

Regulatory Forecasting℠ is a unique state regulatory monitoring service providing clients with early stage customized monitoring of emerging state and local regulatory activity. The Regulatory Forecasting process begins by alerting clients to new regulatory initiatives when they are in the discussion phase, prior to formal publication in a state register or website. Once identified, each issue is closely monitored until the rule or guidance is published as final and effective.

Regulatory Forecasting is performed by experienced regulatory attorneys who are deeply familiar with state administrative procedure and the specific issue interests of our clients.

The main features of Stateside Associates’ Regulatory Forecasting℠ are:

  • Early warning information based on discussions with regulators and by reviewing the upcoming agendas of board and committee meetings. Beginning regulatory monitoring by identifying potential rulemaking activity at this earliest stage—prior to a formal register notice—allows our clients the opportunity to become involved at a point when intervention can be most impactful.
  • Provided by Stateside’s Regulatory Counsel—attorneys with detailed knowledge of the regulatory monitoring process. Stateside’s attorneys have the experience to understand how regulatory activity will impact our clients, how the process will unfold and where our clients will have an opportunity to influence the process.
  • Regulatory Forecasting includes a clear description of the rulemaking process and customized summaries of regulatory activity with the specific client questions highlighted. Customized summaries and descriptions of processes allow our clients to quickly know the rulemaking trajectory and understand the content of the rulemaking without having to read the entire rule draft.
  • Email alerts for each rulemaking from the first register notice to finalization. Clients can choose to receive email alerts when new rulemakings are published as well as when key events such as workshops and comments periods are published in state registers. 
  • Customized iStateLink℠ web portal retains all Regulatory Forecasting information. Clients have anytime access to a customized iStateLink web portal that is searchable by any combination of state, issue and regulatory status. These searches can be generated into a .pdf or excel format report for distribution to colleagues. Further, the portal is compatible with all tablet computers, allowing for easy use when out of the office.
  • Unlimited access to Stateside Associates’ Regulatory Counsel for follow-up. Stateside’s team of Regulatory Counsel are ready to help clients with a deeper dive into all aspects of rulemaking and the regulatory monitoring process.
