Compliance analysis

Our highly experienced consultants are part of a global network of compliance specialists. This means you can trust us to provide a thorough analysis of your compliance status. We will analyze your current compliance requirements and any solutions you have identified. We then use process models and examples from best practice to make managing your compliance requirements more efficient. If you want to know whether your processes are working reliably, quickly, and smoothly enough, we can use specific parameters to evaluate your current situation and then provide recommendations. We always align our recommendations with the needs of your company and the industry you work in. This includes taking into account your organizational structure, internal requirements, existing supplier data sheets, supplier contracts and conditions, test routines as well as acceptance rules and quality control for Material Data Sheets. We can check specific customer requirements and the accuracy of your Material Data Sheets before you submit them. We can also evaluate how you handle prohibited and declarable substances.

Our specialist 1:1 coaching service is the ideal choice if you are working on a specific project or want to manage a process in line with materials compliance requirements. Our 1:1 coaching service focuses entirely on your specific needs. The first step is to arrange an initial consultation by telephone or video conference so we can identify the processes or areas that are causing you difficulties. We will then arrange some coaching sessions with our expert consultants who will provide you with plenty of in-depth, practical advice. Our coaching service can be delivered in several languages and the sessions can be held either at your company premises or by video conference.
