The Regulatory affairs team is responsible for ensuring the global compliance of chemical products. A big part of the role will be SDS management – authoring new SDSs and updating existing SDSs using the company’s SDS software package.

You will advise on regulatory impacts of raw material selection and advise sales teams on the impact of international regulations.
