Align is an ERO Enterprise common platform developed to support compliance monitoring and enforcement (CMEP) activities and business processes. The tool provides a standardized and consistent interface for Registered Entities conducting CMEP activities. The Align rollout consists of three releases with full implementation by the end of 2021.
All Registered Entities seeking to access Align must register for an ERO Portal account and complete the steps for Multi-Factor Authentication that automatically appear when attempting to log into the ERO Portal for the first time.
The rollout of Align Release 1 will be staggered with Registered Entities in the MRO and Texas RE Regions piloting the Align tool and ERO Secure Evidence Locker (SEL) starting on March 31, 2021. The remaining Regions, including RF, will rollout R1 starting on May 24.
Each release will introduce new functionality to the platform.

RF Registered Entity Align and ERO SEL Training
RF is excited to offer our stakeholders a demonstration and basic training on the new Align and ERO SEL systems. We are offering five options for schedule flexibility, and each session is a three-hour WebEx meeting.
Primary and Alternate Compliance Contacts should select one session to attend, as each session will include identical content and information. Please Note: RF is limiting each session to 50 Registered Entities to make these sessions manageable, and have necessary time for questions and answers. If your first choice of a session is full, please choose one of the other options. RF also is considering adding future training sessions based on need and requests from the industry.
Each three-hour session will cover the following content and learning objectives (subject to change):
Secure Evidence Locker
The ERO Secure Evidence Locker (SEL) is a highly secure, isolated, encrypted environment that is subject to file destruction policies and serves as a temporary repository to upload evidence. Organizations may use the ERO provided SEL environment or develop their own. If your organization is planning to build an SEL, please inform your Change Agent.
