Caleb has well-recognized expertise in the field of chemicals policy, consortium management, and chemicals risk management, as well as strong policy credentials in the Montreal and Kyoto Protocol arenas. Acta and Acta EU are leading international specialists in and work closely with B&C on chemical product approval, support, and regulatory defense. The combined expertise of the four Companies will enhance the services offered by B&C, Acta, and Acta EU. Together, B&C, Acta, Acta EU, and Caleb will offer a full range of global chemical program consulting services, which include, but are not limited to, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Screening Information Data Sets (SIDS), and REACH. Each will retain their account management responsibilities as “Only Representatives” on behalf of non-EU companies who are themselves manufacturers of substances, formulators of preparations, or producers of articles, or as “Third Party Representatives” on behalf of EU entities and data holders that wish to participate in a particular Substance Information Exchange Forum for their existing client bases. Each will, however, increasingly cooperate on the preparation and review of technical dossiers and the performance of chemical risk assessment and analysis, including, but not limited to, supply chain communication, development of exposure scenarios, socio-economic assessments, and registration services -- along with support services to manufacturers, processors, and/or users of chemical products.
