Chemical & Waste Regulation
Chemical & Waste Regulation

Our Environmental group has particular expertise in chemical regulation matters, including chemical substances and hazardous products. Members of our team have advanced degrees in chemical engineering and related fields, making them particularly adept at advising on intellectual property protection, product licensing, implementation of appropriate controls and toxicological testing.
Our role is to assist with developing, implementing and enforcing chemical management systems and corporate compliance programs. We advise on data retention, registration and reporting requirements, enforcement actions, risk management, as well as legislative developments and regulatory initiatives for all types of regulated chemical products. We also advise on the legal requirements and regulations when importing and exporting chemical substances.
