Product stewardship and support

Product stewardship is the practice of making health, safety and environmental protection an integral part of the life cycle of chemicals. It is a shared responsibility between chemical producers, their suppliers and the end customers; and provides a platform for companies to identify risks at an early stage and manage those risks along the value chain.

While good product stewardship is typically exercised at a company level, we support companies by helping them to characterise the risks associated with the manufacture and use of their products. We further develop the documentation required to assure safe chemical handling and use. We also support our clients in developing their strategies and risk communications for chemicals of public concern to address perceived - but not scientifically justified - risks.


Our product stewardship services include:

Generation of ICCA-compliant product safety summaries
Development of REACH-compliant extended Safety Data Sheets (eSDS)
Establishment and moderation of scientific review panels
Development of science-based strategies and documentation to support chemicals or products under regulatory or public scrutiny for scientifically unjustified reasons
Science advocacy and product defence
Communication of (eco)toxicology and risk assessment findings to various audiences with different levels of scientific knowledge
