Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C), The Acta Group, L.L.C. (Acta), and The Acta Group EU, Ltd (Acta EU) are pleased to announce each has entered into a strategic alliance with ENTRIX, Incorporated (ENTRIX), one of the largest scientific environmental and natural resource management consulting firms in the United States. The alliance will provide additional scientific depth and capacity to strengthen B&C, Acta, and Acta EU’s ability to deliver targeted and strategic services related to the European Union’s (EU) Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation, and supplement related domestic and international chemical management services. It will also expand current capabilities to other areas such as evaluation of client vulnerabilities to “Authorization” under REACH, development of “Green Chemistry” strategies, and the design of chemical risk assessments/risk management practices in support of Product Stewardship programs.

ENTRIX is recognized as a premier scientific firm in the field of environmental risk assessment, ecotoxicology, and human health toxicology. ENTRIX has expanded its significant scientific strength to providing clients with support in the area of Product Safety and Compliance. The firm has also expanded its expertise by adding seasoned scientists from the chemical industry with direct experience in REACH implementation, product stewardship, and advocacy support on chemical policy at the state, national, and international levels. This includes a team of doctorate level scientists in the fields of chemistry, toxicology, risk assessment, environmental toxicology, and environmental chemistry, as well as experts in the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for classification and labeling.

Members of the ENTRIX team were actively involved in REACH advocacy and leading chemical company implementation of REACH. They were also involved in the development of the United Nations (UN) Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), the California Green Chemistry Initiative, and were leading members in the design and implementation of the Global Product Strategy (GPS) at the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA). Acta and Acta EU are leading international specialists in and work closely with B&C on chemical product approval, support, and regulatory defense.
