Top Regulatory Trends for 2014
The regulatory environment in the United States will likely be increasingly challenging in 2014. Companies in many sectors are facing additional rules and requirements that could significantly affect their businesses. At the same time, many regulators are stepping up their supervisory oversight and enforcement activities, creating a dynamic compliance environment that will likely require significant investments of time, effort and resources.
The Deloitte Center for Regulatory Strategies (DCRS) is producing a series of reports that discuss the top regulatory trends for 2014 in five key industries: energy, banking, securities, insurance and life sciences. The energy industry report was released in late November and can be viewed here. The remaining reports are scheduled to be released as follows:
• Banking: late December
• Securities: early January
• Insurance: early January
• Life Sciences: early February
The reports highlight the regulatory trends that are expected to have the biggest impact on the industry in question. For each trend, we provide a quick summary of what’s happening, the expected impact and what companies can do to get ready. Although most businesses will face a wide range of other compliance and regulatory issues, we believe the highlighted trends should be at or near the top of their agendas.
