Coordinating Informational Service Center (CIS Center), the premiere EHS and product safety compliance consultancy in Russia, and ChemADVISOR, Inc., have formed a partnership to help sell and support ChemADVISOR’s LOLI database and GCRR reports in Russia and the CIS countries.

This partnership will allow CIS Center to offer a broader set of solutions to its existing and potential customers.  The LOLI database and GCRR reports compliment the current international and Russian regulatory compliance services that CIS Center provides.

“For ChemADVISOR, this partnership is an opportunity to sell into one of the largest and fastest growing chemical markets in the world, and to do so with a partner who is intimate with the needs of the Russian chemical industry as well as with the specific requirements and practical implementation of Russian laws and standards,” said Andrew Dsida, President of ChemADVISOR.

ChemADVISOR’s LOLI (List of Lists) Database contains over 4800 regulatory lists from around the world, useful for SDS preparation and other regulatory compliance needs. Data sources include country inventories, physical/chemical properties and toxicity data as well as data necessary for international environmental, health and safety compliance. The coverage of Russian legislation in the LOLI Database includes more than 60 regulatory lists, covering a variety of different standards and legislation. As part of the partnership, a Russian user interface was developed for LOLI Desktop, LOLI in the Cloud, and ChemADVISOR Online products, for the convenience of Russian speaking users.

ChemADVISOR’s Global Chemical Regulatory Reports (GCRR) begin with a background section that introduces you to the legislative framework within each country or region, the main bodies in charge of legislation related to chemical regulation and links you to the gazette or register published by the country or region.  The report then provides a detailed summary of the regulatory environment in each country to allow an entity to successfully engage in that chemical marketplace.
