Japan´s very strong chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industry needs regulatory and scientific support to stay competitive in the European market with its complex regulatory requirements. For chemicals, the European REACh regulation differs considerably from the respective Japanese laws and needs special attention. Japanese agrochemical companies are facing a similar challenge for their active ingredients and products, namely the very high regulatory barrier. With the support of knoell's worldwide locations, the Japanese subsidiary offers support to enter the EU market but also to register agrochemicals, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices on a global scale. At the same time, Knoell Japan K.K. can assist European, US and other companies to get their necessary registrations in Japan, e.g. according to the chemical substance control law (CSCL). Thus, Knoell Japan K.K. is an efficient interface between our Japanese clients and knoell subsidiaries worldwide.
