“As a leading global producer of plastic additives, we leverage our extensive experience in the plastic industry and strong knowledge of product stewardship and chemical legislation to stay ahead of the evolving regulatory trends. We proactively support our customers to ensure responsible and appropriate use of our additive solutions,” says Dr. Thomas Kloster, President, Performance Chemicals, BASF. “With the extension of the successful RegXcellence service to include plastic additives, we now enable our customers to benefit from our extensive regulatory service and expertise. Together, we can mitigate business risks, accelerate innovation, and achieve sustainable growth through regulatory compliance.”

As this service expands, plastic additives customers will have access to a convenient digital solution to access regulatory documents. A global community of regulatory experts also evaluates relevant environmental, health and safety data. These experts are available to support customers when it comes to registration services or process and substance consulting. In addition, specific regulatory trainings are offered.

BASF already offers RegXcellence services to the customers of its fuel and lubricant solutions, plasticizers, pharma solutions and human nutrition businesses.
