Global data management Our database contains all the relevant regulatory information on such aspects as standards, raw materials and product composition. It can be accessed through a multilingual keyword index. It also contains the data sheets in the particular language required, be it Japanese, English, Spanish, Russian, or another language. As with the data sheets, we generate all the required labels and dangerous goods indicators automatically whenever we prepare our additives for shipment or export. Our labels conform to the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of classifying and labeling chemicals, which has been adopted as standard in Europe by the CLP Regulation of the EU (governing classification, labeling and packaging). For our users in the USA, Japan, China and Korea, we have tailored them to the GHS versions currently valid there. Our service: personal, comprehensive, fast and direct. Expertise for specialty areas In Europe, REACH is an important part of regulatory compliance. We place the specialist knowledge we have acquired over the years at our customers’ disposal, often in seminars or through direct dialog. In addition, we provide detailed information on our website. On the subject of food contact, we possess extensive knowledge of the relevant country-specific regulations. This ranges from the Swiss Ordinance of Materials and Articles in Contact with Food (SR 817.023.21) via Title 21 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations – Food and Drugs (Title 21 CFR FDA) to the Chinese food safety standard GB 9685-2008 “Hygienic Standard for Use of Additives in Food Containers and Packaging Materials”. Likewise, we are familiar with regulations operating in the area of gas and oil production. These concern, for example, the OSPAR Convention for the Protection of the Environment of the North-East Atlantic or the main industry forum EOSCA (European Oilfield Specialty Chemicals Association). 9
