TECHNICAL publisher InterRegs is spearheading the latest in online initiatives with the launch of a new Internet-based regulations service for the motoring industry.

The Fareham-based firm is already well-known for its CD-Rom updates for the car manufacturing industry but the new service provides a means of searching, buying and downloading regulatory documents online.

Managing director Rebecca Rubio said: "We have been researching Internet possibilities and we've waited until we were in a position to offer the industry exactly what it wants, in up-to-date global coverage, easy access and both purchasing and downloading online.''
