Intertek Launches Process Solution for Restricted Substance Compliance



    BLUE BELL, PA, May 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (www.intertek.com), the
leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries,
has launched an effective Compliance Assurance System (CAS) Solution to deal
with challenging restricted substances laws recently enacted. The CAS Solution
ensures businesses that their products comply with applicable restricted
substances legislation and provides an effective means to utilizing your
current quality management system.
    Current and new chemicals legislation, like CPSIA, RoHS, California
Proposition 65, and REACH will require immediate action by retailers,
manufacturers, and distributors, who need to ensure that their products comply
in order to be sold, while maintaining or developing a competitive advantage
through efficient implementation.
    Intertek's CAS solution provides a comprehensive, onsite program that
develops a match to the customer's businesses needs by eliminating negative
impacts, such as loss of sales, product recall, and obsolete inventory. The
program includes a review of restricted substance legislation relevant to the
company's business and product lines, a gap assessment of any existing
approaches implemented, training to perform risk-based product assessments,
and a test plan for your products. Upon completion, the business will receive
an Intertek CAS Certificate evidencing a successful conclusion of the program.
    "Businesses are challenged with the task of both proving compliance to
current restricted substance legislation and sustaining this effectively over
time", states Thomas Rainone, General Manager, Intertek Health and
Environmental Services CMS consulting division. "The CAS Solution will provide
them an integrated, comprehensive means to meet customer requirements and
legal obligations."
