Carlsbad, Calif., August 26, 2013 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, today announced a strategic collaboration with Ithos Global, which helps companies access regulatory product safety information. The alliance aims to offer Ithos Global’s clients with access to 3E’s Ariel® regulatory data, which provides extensive coverage of regulated chemicals throughout the world at multiple levels of jurisdiction.
Under the terms of the agreement, Ithos will promote 3E’s Ariel regulatory data within integrated systems to enhance its customers’ product stewardship and workplace safety initiatives. Integrating Ariel regulatory data with Ithos Global’s content management systems will enable customers to seamlessly access and use 3E’s global chemical and regulatory data from their own enterprise systems, and benefit from new capabilities in identifying, monitoring, and complying with ever-changing EH&S regulations.
“With 3E as an ally, Ithos is able to extend our existing regulatory offerings to deliver a robust platform for complete product lifecycle content and document creation and management services,” said Ken Bubeck, CEO, Ithos Global. “If food, cosmetic, and chemical product distributors are not compliant with the regulations of the countries to which they export, their shipments can be turned away at customs. That can cost companies millions of dollars each year. Our collaboration with 3E helps mitigate that risk by offering our clients access to 3E’s enhanced safety information via a single, integrated solution for managing EH&S and regulatory compliance for reduced cost, risk, and liability.”
“3E is committed to helping our clients maximize the benefits they get from their investment in our data and services,” said Chris Kraus, strategic alliances director, 3E Company. “We’re experiencing heightened demand to build connections between our clients’ 3E solutions, complementary third party environmental and compliance systems, and internal manufacturing platforms and data. We’re delighted to work with Ithos to help meet that demand from our common clients while helping them achieve their global compliance goals.”
Ariel regulatory content provides up-to-date, comprehensive global regulatory information containing thousands of searchable chemical lists, full-text regulations, and compliance guides covering several dozen countries. Access to this collection of global regulatory content provides unprecedented support for identifying, monitoring, and complying with complex EH&S requirements. 3E’s global research team consists of international, multi-lingual experienced product stewards, industrial hygienists, attorneys, chemists, and chemical engineers, safety data sheet (SDS) experts and EH&S systems consultants, all of whom are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information available.
