Pandemic | Breakout: Remote Regulation
For months, many regulators’ offices around the world have been closed physically (and some entirely for a time) due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Remote work has taken root and is likely to continue for an indeterminate time. Can regulators regulate effectively in a remote work environment? What challenges and opportunities are there, including maintaining productivity and efficiency? Can critical activities such as disciplinary investigations and hearings be conducted effectively online? This breakout will dig into these issues and produce examples of unique solutions to some of the remote regulation challenges.
