CGI is proud to be a market leader for REACH technology
Fairfax, VA (Vocus) April 2, 2010
CGI Group, Inc. (TSX: GIB.A; NYSE: GIB), a leading provider of information technology and business process services, today announced its REACH environmental solution, REACHMate has been successfully implemented in multiple client organizations before the mandated November 2010 REACH registration deadline.
REACHMate, part of CGI’s Environment Health and Safety (EHS) solutions portfolio, was developed in 2009 through partnership with leading chemical companies to create a comprehensive solution for managing use and exposure scenario data in compliance with the European Union’s (EU) REACH regulation. REACHMate streamlines data tracking and reporting in order to meet REACH compliance. It is a comprehensive, flexible and intuitive solution that can be integrated with existing Product Safety solutions.
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances) is a European regulation on chemicals and their safe use and is considered the most ambitious chemical legislation that has ever been enacted anywhere in the world. This regulation affects any chemical company who is producing chemicals in or importing chemical substances into the EU, requiring it to manage more chemical information than ever before.
“CGI is proud to be a market leader for REACH technology,” said Rich Beach, CGI’s Director of Environmental Solutions practice area. “We have further strengthened our long-standing client partnerships by delivering REACHMate well in advance of the November 2010 REACH registration deadlines.” REACHMate is designed to integrate with any third-party EHS solution and can be easily updated to comply with evolving regulations and implemented under compressed timeframes.”
