Jurisdictions covered

Legislation relating to controlled and regulated chemicals, especially controlled drugs, is constantly changing as governments around the world try to keep ahead of emerging designer drugs an regulated toxic chemicals.

This poses challenges for the chemical, pharmaceutical, forensics and related industries who have to maintain compliance with the legislation, often across many countries with libraries running into millions of compounds.

Using Controlled Substances Squared this is searchable via structure!...not just names.

Scitegrity's experts have built a large database of controlled drug and regulated chemical legislation from around the world. Access to this is available via a low cost subscription, which includes alerts to legislation updates for 1 year.

The system is available as both on premises and cloud based.

If we don't currently cover legislation that you need please contact us, we can generally chemically encode new legislation within weeks and we don't just cover controlled drug laws, which we tend to find are the most complex.
