ERM at the Conference
ERM is pleased to play an active role at the CIR 2017 Biocidal Product Regulations Conference, sharing our insights for addressing strategy and cooperation under Biocide Products Regulation. ERM will be speaking at the conference and will engage with clients and other professionals throughout the event.

ERM & Product Stewardship
We have all seen that the focus on product stewardship has intensified over recent years due to demand from consumers for greater supply chain transparency and safer, ‘greener’ products. This has also been driven by the growing array of environmental, health, safety and, sustainability (EHSS) regulations.
ERM’s approach to product stewardship not only seeks ways to avoid product impoundment or recall, which can disrupt supply chains, increase costs and damage brand and reputation. It also aims to identify and mitigate these risks while looking beyond them to assess key product and brand differentiators that have the potential to drive innovation, and contribute to the bottom line.
ERM’s Product Stewardship service offering was strengthened by the acquisition of ReachCentrum in 2015 and JSC International in early 2016. We help multinational companies (MNCs) achieve their growth targets while staying compliant & safe in an increasingly competitive, stringent regulatory environment through effective Product Stewardship. The addition of ReachCentrum and JSC to ERM provides a wealth of knowledge and experience covering a wide range of product types and regulatory procedures to support clients through the value chain.
