Product Stewardship

Integral assists clients in determining the health, safety, and environmental impacts of their products and processes.
 
Product stewardship seeks to minimize the health, safety, environmental, and social impacts of a product throughout all life cycle stages. Before a product is manufactured, Integral provides toxicology, exposure assessment, and risk assessment services to verify regulatory compliance. We also assist clients in responding to the increased requirements of the amended Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), and mandatory programs such as California’s Proposition 65, through the application of our multidisciplinary expertise. For enhanced safety and sustainability, we conduct alternative assessments to reduce the use or generation of hazardous substances.

From evaluating compliance with state and federal regulations, to verifying that a new chemical ingredient is safe to use, our world-class scientists help clients bring products to market and communicate the safety of existing products. Integral’s support includes chemical analysis, literature compilation and evaluation, exposure and risk assessment, toxicological evaluation, and assessment of product composition and stability.
