Intertek Provides REACH Data Sharing and Licensing Solutions

OTTAWA, Oct. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (, the leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries, has expanded its REACH services portfolio by providing comprehensive solutions to assist companies with REACH data sharing, data access and licensing of studies.

REACH data holders have an obligation to share toxicological evaluations and vertebrate test data with the lead registrant of a substance. Most data holders do not have the resources to meet these requirements and are faced with meeting the obligations for sharing data under REACH. Companies that produce studies want to ensure they will be properly compensated.

Intertek provides a global network of REACH centers, Substance Information Exchange Forums (SIEF) expertise, and regulatory experts to enable sharing of data. Intertek will identify consortia, SIEFs and lead registrants that require specific copyrighted test studies, and negotiate compensation term arrangements under the data compensation rules provided in the REACH Guidance for Data Sharing. Intertek's qualified resources evaluate the quality of the data, communicate with the proper stakeholders, and put in place the correct compensation agreement for this data.

"Customers are continuously challenged by these expanding, complex REACH requirements," states Dr. Ruud Overbeek, Vice President of Intertek's Health and Environmental Services, Restricted Substances and REACH. "Intertek's services will ensure that REACH registrants will obtain the quality data they need, that data-holders will be properly compensated for the data they provide, and that all stakeholders will achieve substantially less vertebrate testing towards registration."

Let Intertek help you unlock the value from your available laboratory studies. For additional information about Intertek's REACH services, please contact our experts in practical REACH compliance directly at or visit
