Decernis becomes Siemens Solution Partner to deliver global regulatory product complianceand speed-to-market in consumer and food/beverage product industries.

Decernis, a leader in global compliance management systems, today announces a Consulting and Systems Integrator Alliance Agreement with Siemens PLM Software, a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services. Decernis will integrate its global compliance management solutions with Siemens’ product lifecycle software in order to assist consumer product, food, beverage, retail and distribution companies.

The need to determine the regulatory compliance status of a consumer product in any global market, at any stage from research & development to final customer delivery, is essential to the integrity and quality of a product delivered to a customer. The complexity of meeting product safety requirements around the world is made difficult by the lack of international harmonization, inherent complexity and frequent change.

With Decernis’ compliance management solutions integrated with the client’s product lifecycle management system, a manufacturer of consumer products is able to analyze and manage the global regulatory compliance status, hazards, and restrictions that apply to the ingredients and final product formulas at any stage of the product life cycle. Decernis will work with customers to integrate both its compliance management systems and news and horizon scanning systems with Siemens’ product lifecycle management solutions. This will provide customers in the food, beverage, and consumer product industries with the capability to determine not only what is currently required but also what regulatory compliance requirements are changing in a global marketplace. To allow for global compliance coverage, Decernis delivers product safety management systems covering 180 countries.

The alliance with Siemens combines the unique global regulatory knowledge platform and PLM technology required to provide customers the solutions they need to serve their global markets more efficiently.

  • Customers can leverage this partnership allowing the customization and delivery of integrated technology solutions they require.
  • Such integrated technology solutions will allow companies to increase their speed to market at a reduced cost.

The alliance builds on the capability of both companies to deploy fully integrated systems to help customers more efficiently manage their operations worldwide.

“A growing number of our customers in the Consumer Products and Food & Beverage industry are focused on global regulatory compliance, labeling and claims across their products’ lifecycle. The alliance with Decernis is an ideal complement to Siemens PLM Software’s existing robust compliance management solutions and strategy. It is also an important step to help drive our customers’ growth globally and minimize their risk-exposure through an integrated product and compliance platform,” said Helmuth Ludwig, Executive Vice President of Digital Enterprise Realization and Chief Manufacturing Officer for Siemens PLM Software.

“The compliance and safety of products in any country are critical concerns to the customer. Determining compliance status is an increasingly complex and difficult problem. We are delighted to partner with Siemens to deliver a solution that will enable a user to determine compliance status as well as to be informed of changing regulations through our platforms. I believe that the benefits will reduce time and delays and increase quality at each stage of the product lifecycle. Implementations of our compliance management systems have demonstrated a high multiple factor as a return-on-investment.” said Andrew (Pat) Waldo, CEO of Decernis.
