You can give the nodes (each item in the list) in a Reference model evidence of compliance by quickly linking them back to the processes steps that users follow. And while doing so, you will be providing end users with specific, contextual help on what regulations and procedures they need to abide by.
Linking to processes
In the ref model, find the correct node and right-click on it. Select "copy node link" option.
Find the process diagram and, for the activity step, right mouse click (or in right panel) and select "Add link" and chose "Ref Model Node".
When you are in view mode, clicking on the "more information" icon on activity will reveal the linked Reference model link.
Clicking on that link will pop up a modal window with the name & description of the target Reference model node. This can be a clause in a regulation, internal policy or acceptance criteria.
