Emma Louise Jackson, CBiol MSB, The Acta Group’s (Acta®) Manager, REACH, is distinguished by more than a decade of experience in regulatory environments, assisting clients to achieve regulatory compliance in the United Kingdom (UK), the European Union (EU), the Americas, and Asia. She offers particular expertise in worldwide chemical notifications, data analysis, preparing test plans, and managing to completion large and complex compliance projects cost-effectively and harmoniously across multiple jurisdictions. Her focus is on compliance for industrial chemicals and chemical products.

Based in the UK, Ms. Jackson serves clients in the UK, EU, and worldwide. She offers regulatory advice on the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), the UK's domestic implementation of REACH (UK REACH), South Korea’s Act on Registration and Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances (K-REACH), Taiwan’s Toxic Chemical Substances Control Act (TCSCA), the EU and UK Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation, and chemical control measures in India, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and China, among others. Clients rely on Acta specialists such as Ms. Jackson for review of classification and labeling of substances and mixtures, testing strategy advice, literature searching and reliability assessment, and compilation of regulatory documents, such as Chemical Safety Reports (CSR). She is an excellent resource for reviewing compliance with Safety Data Sheets (SDS), and she supports others in Acta in preparing SDSs and product labels and in liaising with various regulatory authorities in this regard.

As Manager, REACH, Ms. Jackson anticipates client needs by providing critical information necessary for intelligent business decisions. This value-added information allows clients to progress with their complex business arrangements. Previous to joining Acta, she was a regulatory manager at a large commercial laboratory.
