Decernis launches regulatory compliance platform for cosmetics and personal care
The new module, gComply for Cosmetics, relies on a database of over 100,000 regulations, spanning 212 countries and regions, explains a media release about the launch. “Currently Decernis is really differentiating with a wider geographic coverage and a capacity to monitor more than 600,000 substances, offering over 5 million regulatory terms across 40+ languages,” says Dr. Robert Fellous, senior director scientific affairs for Decernis.
“gComply is updated bi-monthly, providing you a user-friendly searching and cross-referencing tool at your fingertips,” notes Fellous. Beyond that, the module is “customizable with your own private library of data, documents, and customer standards.”
Speed to market
Decernis highlights speed to market as one of the key advantages of the new gComply for Cosmetics module. “gComply for Cosmetics will guide each through compliance to bring products to market faster and more efficiently,” says Dr. Ruud Overbeek, chief of strategy and business development, in today’s media release.
And, he explains that Decernis’ “solutions benefit compliance and risk management across the entire supply chain, including upstream manufacturer, ingredient supplier, packaging producer, contract manufacturer, product manufacturer and brand needs.”
Other advantages and options
Decernis anticipates beauty makers will also use the new tech solution to facilitate new market entry, new product development and launches, and other aspects of product lifecycle managment. The “systems [will] augment companies' decision-making on Product Safety & Regulatory compliance,” according to the media release.
The Cosmetics module on its own has a subscription price of $2,400 (according to decernis.com). But, it’s also available in combination with other modules the company has previously developed: one for food and consumer products, one for product safely and inventories, and another for contaminants.
Notably, Decernis makes risk management technologies for an array of industries, including chemicals and petrochemicals; healthcare, OTC, and supplements; animal food and feed; as well as food and beverages.
