The chemical industry has some of the most stringent, yet least transparent, rules and regulations among all sectors. Guidelines include those set out by REACH, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Moreover, companies must pay as much attention to environmental and safety regulations as to documentation requirements.
This calls for integrated quality management, transparent formula management, and complete traceability of all goods and materials throughout their lifecycle. Achieving all this without costs skyrocketing is only possible with the right knowledge and integrated IT infrastructure.
