Q: Qual é a diferença entre mandate e compel e oblige e require ?
A: Mandate is an official order by some figure of authority, usually a governmental agency. It's a pretty nice word, but I don't have many opportunities to use it.

Compel is a more indirect command. It's like changing the circumstances to where someone makes the decision on their own. I think that's the key part, that even though you are wanting a certain outcome, the person you are compelling to do something to makes the decision themselves (because you made a situation that forced them to).

Oblige is usually used in the sense that someone is forced to do something through social codes or by honors. To oblige would be to make a certain rule or moral code that forces someone to act a certain way, because that person agrees to operate under that rule.

Require is quite plain, I'd say. It's just like... "you must". It's necessary. This is the by far the most common one, and the simplest.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre current mandates e ongoing mandates ?
A: Current mandates are mandates in place in current time that could change or end. Ongoing mandates are mandates that usually continue over time without changes.

EX: The ongoing mandates state that we should test the samples once per week but the current mandates state that we should test the samples once per day because we are in a state of emergency.
