Chemical compliance

Laws governing chemical compliance affects not only those working in the chemical industry, but also a range of other sectors including manufacturing, retail and energy. Regulatory requirements, customer demands, market opportunities and media attention are driving businesses to know more about the chemicals in their products and supply chains. At the same time, there is growing demand for increased transparency.

Keeping up with developments is challenging, including amendments to existing legislation and policy. Understanding the different regulations applicable to your business and products is key. As a result, compliance requires ever-increasing time and resource, particularly where businesses operate across multiple jurisdictions.

Our multi-jurisdictional environment lawyers understand these pressures. We have extensive experience of chemicals related legislation including REACH, Biocides and CLP, as well as other legislation applicable to specific products such as cosmetics, detergents and medicinal products, where the requirements can interact.
