Overview

With a strong desire to reduce potential environmental and human health risks around chemicals of concern, retailers and manufacturers are moving beyond regulatory requirements. They are working to establish programs that reduce or eliminate certain chemicals from their supply chain, manufacturing processes and products.

We work with organizations to design and implement customized chemical policies based on your unique needs and offer digital solutions to effectively manage those policies.

One of the greatest challenges organizations face in managing chemical policies is in the collection of information from suppliers. Historically, organizations have relied on email, spreadsheets and/or word documents to collect information. This approach creates security concerns around the protection of intellectual property and critical business information. Additionally, this manual process of collecting and sharing information often leads to limited responses from suppliers and data quality issues, ultimately leaving data gaps that are a concern for many organizations.

You can leverage our digital solutions, backed by strong science and regulatory expertise, to establish and communicate those policies and resulting requirements.This helps to better manage the chemicals being used in the manufacture of products.
