What is the Unified Compliance Framework®?

And how does it relate to the Common Controls Hub® ?
Close up of a bookshelf in library
The Unified Compliance Framework®  contains:
check-icon 1,000 Mapped authority documents
check-icon 1,000,000+ Individual mandated
check-icon 10,000+ Common controls
check-icon 250,000 Interconnected words and phrases in the dictionary
The Common Controls Hub® (CCH®) is the dynamic Software-as-a-Service portal built on the Unified Compliance Framework to extract the needed data quickly. Authority Documents are mapped into the UCF, and the data is viewed and extracted through the CCH.


Authority document defined

An authority document is simply a document that your organization must comply with.

Authority Documents

How to keep pace with regulatory demands.

Unified Compliance® maps global regulatory controls from authority documents covering information technology, physical security, records management, privacy, and third-party supply chain. An Authority Document could be your company's internal organizational governance documents or one that forms regulations, principles, standards, guidelines, best practices, policies, and procedures.

Comparing Authority Documents

Create a gap overlap analysis to drastically reduce audit elements.

Quickly and easily compare any Authority Documents or AD lists for gap/overlap to gauge the impact of new initiatives and eliminate redundant common controls in multiple regulations. Route your compliance requirements with as many third parties and supply chain members as needed and track their attestation with immediate reporting on their regulatory compliance adherence, reducing the complexity of monitoring and managing third-party and supply chain compliance to regulations.

How? Select Authority Documents or an AD list for Column A; this could be your "baseline" requirements set. Pick ADs or an AD list for column B; this could represent your risk, a new initiative, a new law, a third party's compliance profile, and more. To see the overlap of Common Controls in List A and B, click on the arrow next to Both AB (and check out the information icon on the Common Controls for Both AB). Once you have your A/B comparison, click Export Compare List and download it to copy to your computer. How much time and money did you save? Click the green dollar sign in the middle column and see.

Research allows users to search and view the relationships between the Unified Compliance Framework's elements. It was created to allow mappers to view the language being used in Common Controls, how Common Controls are tagged, what Citations map to Common Controls, and how the Citations map to Common Controls.

Common Language

Common language refers to words or phrases that are commonly understood by groups of people or in this case, machines. In the Common Controls Hub SaaS portal, common language is processed using our unique multilingual AI natural language algorithm.

Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is the handling of the entire production flow within the Unified Compliance Framework. From distribution to the auditor or third-party management, your compliance regulations are delivered deduplicated with the most credible and legally defensible  standards available.
