Global businesses of all sizes, spanning a host of industries, rely on UL Solutions' trusted software to help protect their brand and eliminate non-compliance risks associated with connected devices and chemical regulations.
Effective product design and compliance create trust
From the early stages of product development through the end of life, product manufacturers must consider and plan for the intended use of a product to make certain it will meet all of the necessary regulatory requirements to support market plans. With the world of connected devices that we live in today, an extra layer of security requirements must be addressed. Brands have a lot at stake in today’s fast-paced product development cycles. Moving too fast without the proper systems in place to manage complex, global regulatory compliance requirements or device security protocols can mean that you are not compliant, and you are taking on more risk than is acceptable for your organization. However, moving too slowly can cause an organization to miss out on revenue and market share.
Global regulatory compliance software
The ever-changing and complex chemical regulations in today’s global market put significant strain on resources and systems within organizations of all types. Many organizations find that they have critical data needed for regulatory documentation stored across different internal systems that don’t communicate with each other.
Even with the most robust materials management systems, the need to monitor and understand global regulatory requirements and watch for changes that can vary based on a product’s intended use is challenging without support from regulatory experts stationed around the globe. At UL Solutions, we have a well-established worldwide network of regulatory experts who gather and analyze changes to rules and regulations before those changes become incorporated into relevant software, providing you with peace of mind that you are producing compliant documentation that allows you to sell your products.
Our chemical data management software, WERCS Studio, is a powerful, configurable platform that can help you meet your global regulatory compliance needs. Whether authoring Safety Data Sheets (SDS), completing several compliance documents or pulling together disjointed chemical data, WERCS Studio provides a comprehensive and flexible automated solution available to help mitigate risks.
Digital access to human factors engineering tools
For manufacturers of medical devices and technologies, human factors engineering (HFE) and usability are key components when it comes to developing safe and effective products. Many healthcare regulators have established HFE requirements, but building in-house HFE expertise is difficult and time-consuming for many medical device companies.
Our Optimal Product Usability Suite (OPUSTM) helps manufacturers leverage cloud-based training, tools, expertise and regulatory guidance in order to meet regulatory HFE expectations as well as incorporate HFE and usability more closely into their product design and development activities.
