Thermphos Taps Atrion International's Product Compliance for SAP EH&S Integration Into Business Processes

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - February 10, 2010) -  Atrion International announced that it has signed an eight year agreement with Netherlands-based Thermphos International BV, a world leading chemical company in phosphorus, phosphoric acid, phosphorus derivatives, phosphates and phosphonates, for Atrion's Product Compliance for SAP® EH&S. The Atrion solution will assist Thermphos in the regulatory analysis of complex product formulations and generate hazard communication documents such as the MSDS or SDS.

"Thermphos decided to implement the SAP EH&S module and was looking to integrate product compliance across all of its business processes so that we can be ready for new legislation as well as geographic expansion," said Rene de Kok, Reach coordinator from Thermphos. "We were looking for a highly automated and comprehensive content provider with an SAP compatible solution that would allow us to accelerate our deployment of SAP EH&S and we turned to our SAP partner Atos Origin for recommendations given their expertise in this area. Atos Origin's relationship with Atrion was a key decision making criteria. Atos Origin is leading this implementation in close cooperation with Atrion."

"Companies that are planning for expansion into new markets need to make product compliance a strategic initiative in their overall plan," said Joe Cella, VP Marketing & Partner Programs at Atrion. "Addressing global compliance is becoming more complex and corporations are increasingly turning to Atrion's team of EH&S and product compliance experts and our network of strategic partners to augment their internal capabilities in this area."

Atrion's Product Compliance for SAP® EH&S is a Powered by ACE™ solution that leverages our extensive managed regulatory content -- consisting of integrated regulatory data, rules, phrases, pictograms and templates (in WWI format).

Catalyst legislations such as REACH, GHS and RoHS and customer demand are making environmental and safety responsibility an increasingly important factor in everything from materials procurement to distribution. Noncompliance creates substantial financial and safety risks that impact the entire supply chain and could inhibit expansion into new markets and profitable growth.
