Intertek Partners with Assent Compliance to Address Challenges in Restricted Substance Management

Partnership will expand portfolio to include compliance software and improved data management solutions

OTTAWA, Ontario--()--The Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services group at Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has partnered with Assent Compliance to advance compliance and assurance solutions for customers needing to meet local, regional and global regulatory requirements pertaining to their packaged goods and products.

With the ever-changing landscape of regulatory compliance for final products (e.g., RoHS, WEEE, REACH), and the emergence of new compliance requirements like the US Conflict Minerals Act, it is of utmost importance that organizations have access to a system that assists with supplier engagement, while also managing supplier compliance information. This partnership with Assent Compliance enables Intertek to collect, house and interpret supplier compliance statements for any of the aforementioned regulatory compliance requirements for finished goods and packaged products, as well as provide customers with accessible platforms to understand compliance status down to the component, material and product level. This, in turn, will allow Intertek to offer its customers complete “end-to-end” solutions.

Mr. Matt Quinn, Manager of Canadian Operations for Intertek’s Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services states, “After reviewing several platforms, it was decided that the advanced technology of Assent’s platform in combination with Intertek’s existing solutions, provides the broadest scope to address our clients’ needs. This permits us to work more efficiently in managing the large volume of suppliers and supplier data that we deal with on a daily basis. With this platform, we can now make our customer’s life substantially less complex, and manage risk more effectively.”

“Partnering with Intertek, a leader in global regulatory compliance, allows us to offer a full and complete suite of products and services to some of the biggest and most respected companies in the world,” states Matt Whitteker, VP of Marketing at Assent Compliance. “We look forward to continue to build innovative and cutting edge software solutions in partnership with Intertek’s expert team.”
