Closeness isn’t purely geographical The more the world grows closer together, the more standardized will the processes in companies become. Many of our customers produce the very same product at various sites in different regions of the world. To do this, they require the very same globally available additive. Thanks to our global regulatory service, you can assume that this product conforms to the applicable regional regulations anywhere in the world. This is possible because BYK has brought together a highly qualified, international team involving proven specialists. They are the direct points of contact for our customers – for initial inquiries and for collaboration on existing projects alike. Collectively, the Global Regulatory Service Team manages all aspects relating to product safety, product stewardship, and the registration of chemical substances. Some team members work locally at our regional sites; others coordinate the activities centrally at our main headquarters in Wesel. Thanks to close networking and intensive cooperation, our customers can be confident of receiving the same reliable service anywhere in the world. Local specialists Whether it’s Europe, America or Asia, the local teams are not only available as a direct point of reference for our customers. The specialists are also in close contact with authorities, networks and associations. This enables them to recognize new developments as they start and to respond appropriately. Their duties include entering our products in the local chemical registers and data management in the national language. Product stewardship BYK is committed to the concept of product stewardship. As part of our regulatory services, we provide the appropriate information in concentrated form, in a special data sheet called BRIEF – “BYK Regulatory Information Extensive Form”. This contains all the relevant regulatory data worldwide, as well as further information on product safety.
