Regulatory requirements testing ensures that differences between the functionality of a system and the legal requirements for that system are identified in-house before they are noticed by third parties such as the industry regulators or local lawyers.

The single most important aspect of meeting local regulatory requirements is having an individual who is responsible for identifying and confirming to these rules. In many industries, there are several different authorities who are responsible for creating regulations which will impact system behaviour. The next essential step is identifying these authorities and the appropriate rules. The task associated with developing tests is then relatively straightforward.
