HSE Compliance of Raw Materials & Products

Among the alphabet spaghetti of legislation, GHS, the TSCA reform and REACH ride high in the minds of many senior executives concerned about compliance. 
Our Principal managed the global team at an FTSE 100 company that ensured HSE and regulatory compliance on the ground through detailed discussions on chemistry of all purchased chemicals.
To support this activity, he led the development of supplier relationships, business processes and tools that ensured compliance for his company without compromising intellectual property or confidential business information for either customer or supplier.
