Expert in the regulatory aspects
Producing and marketing industrial chemical products on French and international markets requires compliance with constantly changing regulations, depending on the sector of activity and geographical areas. Aware of the importance of this issue for its clients, Groupe Berkem long ago opted to bring its regulatory expertise in-house, offering a proactive and agile service.
As an integral part of the R&D department, the Regulatory Division is above all the guarantor of the regulatory compliance of the product portfolio. Groupe Berkem’s regulatory experts manage the procedures specific to each product, from the sourcing phase to renewals of marketing authorisations, where necessary:
- Marketing authorisations
- Compliance or registration
This ability to manage and anticipate regulatory obligations autonomously brings a great deal of agility to the development of innovation projects. Driven by the Group’s ambitions and by customer satisfaction, the regulatory team closely supports the sales teams at every stage of the product life cycle while also providing related advice.
A sustained research and development policy
The Group’s R&D teams include employees with different backgrounds (technicians, engineers, PhDs). This high level of expertise enables the Group to offer innovative solutions to meet its clients’ needs and anticipate market trends. R&D is essential to the future growth of Groupe Berkem:
- Creation of new ranges and upgrades of existing products at the client’s request
- Development of tailor-made solutions for existing or potential clients
Groupe Berkem’s guiding principle is to research and develop biobased solutions that take account of human and environmental issues. Driven by the need to meet the expectations of internal and external customers, the R&D teams are organised within our laboratories specialising in formulation, objectification, biology or analytical quality control (10 R&D technical platforms).
By combining its different areas of expertise, Groupe Berkem has developed Synerkem® technology based on polyphenolic extracts, designed to super-activate the performance of certain active substances. As a result, the biocidal or plant protection agent content of certain products can be significantly reduced, while still guaranteeing optimal effectiveness. This unique technology promises major development projects with players in the hygiene (public and rural) or agriculture sectors where the ecological, health and demographic challenges are major.
Groupe Berkem’s vision of a more virtuous everyday chemistry is driving it to provide solutions for large-scale markets. The synergy between its various businesses will result in a series of new solutions for the clients of its 4 business areas: Construction & Materials, Health, Beauty & Nutrition, Hygiene & Protection, Industry.
