Intensified Supervision

Industry, the chemical industry in particular, is subject to strict and complex legislation and regulations such as the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (‘REACH’) and the Major Accidents Hazards Decree (‘BRZO’). As a consequence of a number of incidents, supervision of the compliance with this legislation and regulations has intensified. It is thus important to ascertain whether the facility and the working procedure of the enterprise comply with the statutory requirements.
