The Acta Group (Acta®), the consulting arm of B&C, was established to complement our legal services by providing a full-range of support to assist clients to function optimally in all jurisdictions in which they market and/or place products upon the market in order to remain competitive. With offices in Manchester, England, Brussels, Belgium, and Washington, D.C., and agents and partners in Asia and South America, Acta can assemble teams with in-country scientific, regulatory, and public policy expertise to help clients get products quickly and efficiently to market — in any country or locale — and keep them there when challenged by a new regulatory regime, issue, or set of rules.

Since the inception of the European Union’s (EU) Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), Acta science, legal, and regulatory professionals have actively assessed the legislation and its implications and have prepared clients for its requirements. The professionals in Acta’s EU and UK offices are uniquely well suited to navigate thousands of pages of rules and guidelines related to REACH, and to the United Kingdom’s (UK) “lift and shift” of the EU regulation which went into effect on December 31, 2020, as UK REACH.

Acta professionals have been, are, and will remain extensively involved in all aspects of REACH and UK REACH and can assist clients in complying with the frameworks today — and also in foreseeing future developments under REACH and UK REACH.
