ReachCentrum and PriceWaterhouseCoopers join forces in "REACH Readiness Review"

ReachCentrum, a new service unit established as a subsidiary of the European Chemical Industry Council, Cefic and PricewaterhouseCoopers, PwC, have just agreed to co-operate in a joint initiative called 'REACH Readiness Review'. ReachCentrum's expertise on the REACH regulation complements PwC's excellence in business risk management, perfecting compliance with laws and regulations. Both companies keep their independence and will continue to offer their own specific services. However, on a case by case basis either ReachCentrum or PwC may propose to combine services through 'REACH Readiness Review'.

'REACH Readiness Review' is a tool to help prepare companies for REACH in function of their status and by defining actions for the current and upcoming REACH implementation phases. This involves a complete review of the company's product portfolio, internal organisation and related business implications of the REACH legislation. The whole process starts with a self-assessment questionnaire and interviews resulting in a proposed review scheme.

The review itself will then be made by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and advisors with sector knowledge, REACH expertise and performance improvement excellence.

Judith Hackitt, Marketing Director of ReachCentrum commented: "Businesses simply cannot afford to wait. They must already start preparing for REACH now, wherever they sit in the supply chain".
