The Acta Group (Acta®) and Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) are pleased to announce the publication of “Chemical Regulation in the Middle East,” written by Michael S. Wenk, M.S. This first of its kind handbook offers an essential guide to the patchwork of chemical regulatory programs and the complex system of permits and licenses that manage chemicals in the countries of the Middle East. It also explores the range of ministry, legislative, and other decrees that encompass pesticides, occupational safety and health, as well as safety data sheets (SDS) and product labels that address regulation to widely-varying degrees.
Mr. Wenk, Senior Regulatory Consultant with Acta and B&C, is an internationally-recognized expert in chemical registration and regulation, having managed global regulatory affairs and product stewardship divisions at Fortune 500 chemical and chemical product companies for over 20 years.  Mr. Wenk possesses an exceptionally broad understanding of international chemical regulatory programs; his intuitive knowledge of the regulatory and cultural characteristics in Central and South America and the Middle East in particular, where regulatory compliance requirements can seem far from clear-cut, is unparalleled. In his books, presentations, and work for clients, Mr. Wenk draws upon his corporate operations and business experience (he also holds an MBA) to assist readers and clients in achieving global regulatory compliance and business success in a competitive, transnational marketplace.

Acta and B&C clients, colleagues, and other industry representatives are encouraged to join Mr. Wenk on September 12, 2018, for a webinar covering the emerging chemical regulatory initiatives underway in the Middle East, with a focus on Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Oman, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia, among others. Registration is available online.
Readers of the new book, “Chemical Regulation in the Middle East,” will gain a thorough understanding of the regulatory programs, the agencies and entities involved, the legislation in force, and the key areas of concern for compliant and commercially successful operations across the Middle East. An Executive Summary of the book is available on the Acta website. “Chemical Regulation in the Middle East” is available for purchase via the John Wiley and Sons Ltd. website.
