Every so often I get an inquiry about regulatory compliance of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. How well does it support IAS requirements? Does it conform to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) regulations? Is it aware of Basel II recommendations?
Instead of explaining it, I’ve prepared this list of resources that you can use to learn more about Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s compliance to regulatory and international standards.
If you are a partner company with access to PartnerSource, the best starting place is this:
Since Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 is equal to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0(from ERP application functionality standpoint), everything in these documents applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 as well.
Specifically, you can download these three white papers:
- IAS Compliance and Microsoft Dynamics NAV
- Sarbanes-Oxley White Paper for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0
- Basel II–related Technical White Paper for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0
Note: The links above require the PartnerSource access.
There are also some general-public materials available from Microsoft and partners:
- Sarbanes-Oxley Readiness with Microsoft Dynamics NAV (white paper)
- Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance – Microsoft Dynamics NAV (article)
- A sustainable approach to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance (article)
- Financial Management in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (white paper; not strictly about regulatory compliance, but helps in understanding some important concepts)
I hope this list of resources will help you find answers to your regulatory compliance questions.
