ERM announces acquisition of Yorkshire-Based JSC International
20 April 2016
ERM is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of JSC International Limited (JSC). JSC is a leading regulatory affairs consultancy based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
The team at JSC provide regulatory advisory services to the chemical industry to help them to navigate the complexities of the EU regulatory environment. They provide a full range of consulting services including data gap analysis, study monitoring, preparation and submission of dossiers and post-submission support. All these services are provided with the aim of maximising the likelihood of a successful registration for their clients.
ERM’s commitment to the chemicals industry
At ERM we are committed to continuing to grow our presence in and deliver high value services to clients in the chemicals industry. We help clients obtain registration for their products and manage compliance with existing and developing legislation internationally. In March 2015, ERM strengthened its offering in this sector with the acquisition of ReachCentrum, a significant provider of services in chemical registration under REACH, the European Union’s regulation on chemicals and their safe use. In 2015 we joined the Chemicals Industries Association (CIA) as an Associate Member and are proud to be sponsoring and judging the CIA’s Environmental Leadership Award at St George's Hall, Liverpool on 30 June 2016 to support our commitment to sustainability within the industry.
We will continue to broaden our service offering to clients in the chemicals sector by adding deeper technical expertise in agrochemicals and biocides to the registration and authorisation process management services that we currently provide to clients in the sector. JSC brings to ERM a team with skills that are highly complementary to those within ERM, adding a strategic blend of scientists from regulatory and commercial backgrounds who maintain a close involvement in the regulatory process through an extensive network of contacts in the EU Commission and Member State regulatory authorities. The acquisition also strengthens ERM’s leading position in the product sustainability market, broadening our capability to support clients with product safety and stewardship.
