The use of technology by regulators (RegTech) has the potential to improve how regulators operate and how easily and/or effectively those they regulate comply. These technological tools range from workflow systems that help improve granting licences and permits or managing investigations, to the use of remote sensing (such as drones or satellite imagery), to smartphone apps that assist individuals or businesses to comply, and to the use of artificial intelligence to draw insights from data. 

But how widespread is adoption of these technologies by regulators?
