Data & Content

Regulatory requirements that directly impact business activities continue to proliferate from every corner of the globe. Many requirements, such as those implementing the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) have a focus on environmental, health and safety (EH&S) issues, although regulatory drivers have expanded to address matters of social responsibility, including issues such as human rights, as well as environmental and ecological sustainability.

Keeping track of global compliance requirements and demonstrating due diligence is a complex and time consuming responsibility. Companies need reliable access to comprehensive, quality, validated information about the suppliers, materials and substances in their supply chain.
