Get true regulatory insight into your chemical supply chain. With WERCSmart (Supply-chain Management And Reporting Technology), you can.
Each year, new regulations relating to safe handling, global transportation, storage, disposal, selling restrictions, as well as point of origin (i.e., conflict minerals) are appearing at a staggering rate. Coupled with nuances in global language translation requirements, maintaining chemical regulatory compliance is becoming one of the most dynamic and challenging functions in many organizations.

Here’s How It Works
WERCSmart aggregates independent, validated regulatory data in one reliable place, allowing users to check regulatory compliance automatically. Simply direct your suppliers to the WERCSmart web page to register their material or product and the system will generate a comprehensive report, highlighting relevant global and regional regulatory information.
By meeting the informational needs of logistics, R&D, legal and environmental health and safety with one single report, WERCSmart will make procurement far more efficient. Plus, the real-time regulatory updates allow you to instantly stop or hold stock if its status changes. Additionally, you now have a repository of critical information on all chemical-containing products and materials in your supply chain.
With advanced access to data beginning at procurement, organizations can now manage their entire supply chain before products arrive at the dock—switching from reactive to proactive and establishing real control over compliance issues. Avoid fines, increase operational efficiency and advance the health and safety of the environment. WERCSmart is the logical choice, giving you the full benefit of our 25 years in worldwide environmental and regulatory compliance.
