Creating Chemistry Within Regulatory Confines
Every chemist, formulator and supplier in the chemical industry knows that there exist strict regulations on all their ingredients, formulations and products. However, understanding and following these specific rules and regulations (both U.S. and international) takes time, money, and resources. In the long run, though, it all helps to protect your workers, your business, and the environment.
With government regulations, there is little room for anything other than total compliance. By remaining in compliance with all applicable chemical standards, your company can avoid the considerable expense of fines and other business restrictions.
