Our Product Stewardship Services

Chemicals regulations around the world are continually expanding and changing, posing a significant challenge for industry. Effective Product Stewardship in your supply chain is essential to satisfy your customers’ demands and to comply with regulations such as EU REACH; international variants like K- REACH, Taiwan TCSCA and China REACH; U.S. Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA); EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR); EU Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Chemical Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP); and the U.S. OSHA Hazard Communication 2012, among others.

Our team has successfully supported manufacturers and their suppliers globally in the reprographics, automotive, aerospace, electronics and consumer products sectors for many years.

Product Assessment

Doing business in a global market, it is essential to have full visibility of potential barriers to entry already during the R&D phase, so that you can answer questions such as:

  • What approval processes do we need to navigate, how long does it take and how much does it cost?
  • Are any of the ingredients restricted in my potential markets?
  • What are the country-specific labelling requirements?
  • Are there any “right-to-know” requirements that could conflict with our CBI?
