Create a New Compliance Obligations Register

Nimonik allows you to monitor documents with obligations for your operations in compliance obligations registers. To create a new register, and begin tracking documents, simply follow the steps below.

Create a New Compliance Obligations Register

You can create a new register by clicking “Create Compliance Obligations” on the CO index page at the account level, 

Or for a specific facility.

This will bring you to the CO creation page. Enter a title for your register, and choose the facilities that you would like to associate it with. 

New Document Settings

On the CO creation page, you will see a number of options associated with 

  • Jurisdiction
  • Industrial Sectors
  • Document Types
  • Legislation Statuses
  • Topics

These will determine the new documents that are automatically added to your compliance obligations by Nimonik. If you would not like to receive new documents, set the “Automatically add new documents to compliance obligations” option at the bottom of the page to ‘No’.

Finish Setting up your Compliance Obligations Register

Once you have chosen your new document settings, you can finish setting up your new register by choosing

  • Register Level Responsible Party – This person or team will be assigned to all of the documents that are added to the register by default
  • Document Sort Order – Choose whether documents are sorted by the original order (the order in which they appear on the library page), or alphabetically
  • Users and Teams to Share the Register with – User the ‘Share with’ field to grant access to users and teams

When you have finished, click Add Documents to proceed to the next step
