For companies across all industry sectors, developing innovative ingredients and products is a hugely exciting and rewarding activity. But it can bring major challenges in terms of understanding the regulatory requirements to ensure product safety for all users as well as the environment.
Safety must be considered throughout the product lifecycle, from occupational exposure of manufacturing workers handling neat and concentrated materials, to the consumers who use finished products in daily life and the impact of the product on the planet.
REGULATORY CONSULTANCY TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS
If you’re uncertain about the best approach to ensure regulatory compliance for your chemicals, ingredients or finished products, we partner with several carefully vetted regulatory consultancies who can help you formulate the best strategy to fit your needs.
Sometimes, you may not actually need new tests and we definitely don’t want to waste your valuable time and money in these circumstances. Often, existing safety information is available and may be enough to satisfy regulatory requirements. Many key regulations support the use of a variety of animal-free approaches including computer modelling and read-across of historical data (in vivo or in vitro) from similar substances.
If there are data gaps, new testing might be needed. These tests should be performed in a GLP accredited lab, and that’s where XCellR8 comes in.
We believe in bringing the right partners to the table, each focussing on their key areas of expertise and providing a vital link in the chain to support the success of your product. Contact us for an initial discussion. We’ll happily introduce you to the partner who is best suited to your needs and support those discussions with testing expertise where relevant.
