Mar 22, 2011, 12:03 ET from Enhesa

BRUSSELS and WASHINGTON, March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 21st, 2011 Enhesa celebrated its tenth birthday as an independent entity.  Established initially as part of the Law Companies Group in 1989, Enhesa has become the leader in assisting Fortune 500 companies in managing EHS regulatory compliance and ensuring global product stewardship.  Key industry sectors include chemicals, petroleum, pharmaceutical, electronics, and financial institutions.  Enhesa's 20% plus organic grow for each of the last 10 years proves the success of their approach.  Today, more than 7,000 EHS managers worldwide rely on Enhesa services.

Enhesa has built a knowledgebase of EHS regulations which includes the What of business requirements, the How to develop cost –effective solutions and the When of enforcement activities in over 150 countries and jurisdictions.  Enhesa combines their unique knowledgebase with an in-house team of 70 dedicated experts from more than 40 different countries and a network of more than 300 local experts and consultants.  No other company or institution has anything remotely similar.  Enhesa provides regulatory data in 48 languages and provides analysis and reports in 26 languages.

As Managing Director Thierry Dumortier stated, "Over the years we have seen the compliance challenge evolve from an operational issue to a boardroom issue.  In response, companies are including EHS issues as an integral part of their corporate strategies.  Fifteen years ago, many US based companies assumed that if they used US requirements as a corporate basis, they would be safe worldwide.  European and Asian based companies assumed that local managers would properly take care of the issue.  With a globalized economy, an increase in EHS regulation amongst developed and developing countries, and increasing financial pressures these are no longer valid assumptions or practical methodologies.  Multinationals require a global standardized system to help understand and manage EHS regulatory requirements.  It is our continuing commitment to our clients and daily challenge to ourselves to find ways to make EHS compliance assurance more effective and efficient for our clients."

Enhesa looks forward to a long compliant future.
