Product Stewardship is fully integrated within Archroma’s processes in order to ensure that hazardous chemical risks are identified and controlled. Current and future knowledge of regulatory authorities’ requirements, often specific to countries and regions, is essential. In addition, other value chain stakeholders influence market demand (consumers, brands, NGO’s) and the resultant required specification in order to manage the risk of chemistry that poses a hazard to consumers and the environment.

All these requirements have to be gathered, consolidated and communicated to all related internal stakeholders to ensure that product design, innovation, registration, production and resultant application conforms to these changing requirements. The product stewardship organization has the gatekeeper function for raw material sourcing and production processes. An essential process required in specialty chemical manufacturing is a competent chemical Inventory management system Incorporated in master data management systems.

The product stewardship organization has three dedicated testing laboratories at its disposal in order to control and confirm product compliance to market-related restricted substance lists specifications, in addition to regulatory requirements. These eco laboratories are located In Pakistan, India and China. In order to support the necessary regulatory support processes and market required compliance certifications, we have invested in a dedicated global team, trained and qualified with the necessary scientific knowledge in order to deliver the highest standard of product stewardship in the industry.
