    Cool to apply a regulation

    Hello,

    I have a problem: A new regulation will be enforced soon and my company is working on "applying" this new law.

    I don't really know how to express this in my presentation:

    "We've been highly active in applying or enforcing or establishing this new regulation."


    Can you help me, please?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    WIll

    How about "implementing"?

    Instead of "highly active", try "proactive".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or "conforming" to the regulation.
