Product safety & stewardship

Accelerating changes to regulatory programmes and the rapidly evolving understanding and perception of product safety together create multiple challenges for product stewardship. Ramboll forges alliances with clients to obtain approvals of substances and products, manage compliance and address potential consumer and worker health and environmental risks associated with chemical ingredients, manufacturing intermediates and finished products.

Our regulatory and technical teams across the globe work together to develop comprehensive and effective strategies to obtain regulatory approvals and address complex technical challenges that can disrupt even the most sophisticated and established stewardship and sustainability programmes. Our multidisciplinary teams (including regulatory experts, scientists, engineers and statisticians) comprehensively characterise and effectively communicate the potential risks from chemicals and product uses and identify options for safe, state-of-the-science stewardship. 

We evaluate products and their ingredients or components across the entire lifecycle, providing insights on safety, sustainability, supply chain risk, and compliance with regulatory requirements around the world.

Circular economy - Non-toxic material flows

For companies wishing to make use of recycled material, its unknown content of potentially hazardous or banned substances can cause problems. As more and more substances and groups of substances are identified as hazardous to the environment or human health and regulated in legislation, the requirements for users of recycled materials are growing.

Ramboll helps companies to manage and overcome these difficulties by:

  • Investigating legal requirements for recycled materials
  • Assessment and assistance in fulfilling by-product and end-of-waste criteria
  • Investigation and risk assessment of the presence of hazardous substances in both virgin and recycled materials
  • Assessment of alternatives
  • Designing chemical contamination control systems for legal compliance and supplier specifications
